I am working on a web based tool that we are hoping to build
The tool is expected to provide a user interface to perform
following simple user actions -
1. check out/load a file from central server.
2. provide an editor to work on the file.
3. Save and check-in/upload the changes back to central
While I have found information on using file system, it is
not clear whether Flex has any capability to
interact with a version control system such as clearcase,
pvcs, cvs or subversion, thus allowing the flex application
to allow to checkout the file from the server, work on it and
check it back in.
You can't interact with other applications directly using
Flex or even AIR. You need to use something like RPC or HTTPService
for example to Perl or Python scripts, or to server Java to
interact with the other apps, then return the data to Flex.
