I have written several times about the Flex / Spring integration on this blog. Now things are about to get even simpler and more integrated. This is very exciting news!
From the press release:
Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced that it is working with SpringSource to simplify the development and deployment of rich enterprise Java(TM) applications through a collaboration that will provide integration between the Adobe(R) Flash(R) and SpringSource platforms. This collaboration will make it easy for Java developers to create enterprise-class rich Internet applications (RIAs) using Adobe Flex(R) software, a cornerstone of the Adobe Flash Platform, and Spring, the de facto standard for enterprise Java.
With support from Adobe, SpringSource is introducing Spring BlazeDS Integration, a new open source project to provide tight integration between Spring and BlazeDS, Adobe’s open source server-based Java remoting and Web messaging technology. A beta version of the Spring BlazeDS Integration will be available from SpringSource in mid-December.
Also in development for early next year is the SpringSource Adapter for Adobe(R) LiveCycle(R) Data Services ES(TM) which will provide integration with Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES, enabling the creation of server push-based applications based on Adobe Flex for real-time and near real-time solutions.
