Open Source Flex Development Framework


Moxie Zhang has posted a nice article in infoq about Open Source Flex development frame works. In his post Moxie has listed 10 Open source frameworks for Flex Development.

Following are top Open Source Frameworks:

  1. Cairngorm
    “The Cairngorm micro architecture is intended as a framework for Enterprise RIA developers. If you are writing a very simple application (such as a prototype application) or an application with only a single view, then you might consider a “Model 1″ solution that doesn’t strive for the same separation of model, view, and control that Cairngorm advocates. The benefits of the Cairngorm architecture are realized when developing complex RIA applications with multiple use-cases and views, with a team of developers, and with a multi-disciplinary development team that includes designers as well as creative and technical developers.” by Adobe
    Download Cairngorm.
  2. PureMVC
    PureMVC is a lightweight framework for creating applications in ActionScript 3, based upon the classic Model-View-Controller design meta-pattern.This free, open source framework does not depend on any Flash, Flex or Apollo classes, and is therefore suitable for architecting applications on any platform running AS3.” By PureMVC
    Download PureMVC
  3. Model-Glue
    The Model-Glue family of frameworks support Web application developers by making the construction of Object-Oriented Web and Rich Internet Applications a straightforward process.
    Through a simple implementation of Implicit Invocation and Model-View-Controller, they allow applications to be well organized without sacrificing flexibility.”

  7. Flest Framework
  8. EasyMVC

James Gosling on JavaFX and Adobe Flash / Flex / AIR


Kathleen Richards has posted notes of interview with James Gosling (Creator of the java programming language).

Here are some Q&A Discussed with James Gosling which are specifically for Adobe Flash / Flex / AIR.

How will JavaFX be positioned with regard to Microsoft Silverlight and Adobe AIR?
[James] : It certainly competes with both of those. I think we have a much broader and more capable API set. We’ve got a much stronger security story and cross-platform story and a really strong performance story. And I think our deliverable will be really nice.

As organizations think about building rich Internet applications or rich client applications, when should developers look at JavaFX over competing technologies?
[James] :Â If you look at something like Flash, when you get to the much more advanced stuff — richer interfaces, more complex network protocols, more complex APIs — it really falls short.” We’ve had a platform for years that can build rich Internet applications that are extremely sophisticated.
Our issue hasn’t really been, can you build interesting rich Internet applications? But that it’s difficult. And most of our efforts really are around making a lot of it easier.

In RIA technology space Flash Platform and AJAX are leader and Microsoft (Silverlight) and SUN (JavaFX) are just coming in action.

I am sure that Flash/Flex Platform Community will have some reaction on this.

Flex 3 on RAD way


Ted Patrick has posted the new feature for Flex 3 Beta 2 CURD wizard for ASP .NET, PHP, JAVA and WSDL Introspection.

Flex 3 Beta 2 will have the feature to generate server side Code for data exchange with ASP .NET, PHP, JAVA. Where you can simply select the database and select the table and you will have options to retrieve, create, update and delete record.

This will have the WSDL integration where you have to type WSDL URL in wizard and it will give you all methods exposed by the web service so you can use it.

CURD Generated code will use XML format for exchanging the data between Flex Application and CURD generated scripts.

On RAD (Rapid Application Development) way:

This feature will be very helpful for creating data driven Rich Internet Application Prototypes in quickly. It will be easy for any entry level developer to understand the Flex by creating small data driven applications.
