I want to make a simple application that integrates a flesh
interface with a Java back end. I am using Eclipse Europa
(V220.127.116.11) to make the Java part, and Flex Builder 2 (2.0.1) to
make the interface (separated IDEs, since Eclipse Europa does not
support the flex builder plugin). It does not need to be
complicated - just a "hello java" would be enough.
Im am a newbie with flex, and I just dont know if it is
possible. And if it is, how do I do it?
If someone here have a link to a tutorial or some "how-to"
that I could use, I'd be very glad :)
I would look into HTTPService. It's probably the easiest to
integrate out of the gate. HTTPService gives you the ability to
invoke a URL which can then return XML. It could be a jsp page, a
php page, or a path to a servlet..
In the future, you'll most likely want to look at Web
Services, and LiveCycle Data Services. Which allows you to invoke
methods on java objects using the MX:RemoteObject tag.
