As part of the Flex Test Drive Server, I wrote a new Flex Data Management Services tutorial. The tutorial takes you through the full FDMS application development life cycle: Java assembler, destination, and client application. Additional topics include:
- Controlling when changes are sent to the server
- Controlling client synchronization (autoSyncEnabled)
- Single Item vs Batch Updates
- Conflict resolution
- Locking strategies
- Fill queries
- Single Objects vs Collections

Your feedback on the tutorial and on the Flex Data Management Services in general is appreciated.

ERRATA: On page 4: “On the Java Settings page, specify fdms-tomcat/classes as the Default output folder, and click Finish”. The name of the folder is incorrect: it should read: Specify “fds-tomcat/classes” as the Default output folder (The screen shot is correct).
