    Flex and Seam

    pepeperez
      Do you think it may be possible to integrate Flex Data Services with JBoss's Seam framework?

      Thanks,

      Pepe.

          Seam? sounds more like a competing framework trying to implement data rich with ajax instead of flash. Also.. isn't JSF part of Seam? Since JSF has its view on the server with all those validation, UI component, etc.. It looks like you'd be shoe horning Flex into an MVC that was designed to be page controller based, with all the page refreshes of the early 2000 web era.

          On the other hand.. if someone were to write a Flex render kit, subclassing the UIComponents.. then maybe thats something worth investigating?

            JSF is a component based framework not an MVC framework a la Struts.

            In fact, Seam's livecycle is much near to Flex's that what at first sight may seem.
            Seam Remote, which is an AJAX remoting framework, allows to call EJBs methods
            directly from Javascript => no page refreshes.

            What I was asking with this open question is if someone has tried to develop an
            EJB3Adapter or SeamAdapter that synchronizes the FDS framework with the workflow part of Seam.

            OTOH a JSF render kit for Flex, if something like that is possible, would be a cool path to explore.
