I am working on a dashboard which has been built using Adobe
flex. The dashboard however provides various different
functionalities and touches various totally independent systems at
the backend. All of the backend systems are however built using
J2EE technologies and deployed as multiple ear files. Now thats
where the problem arises,
As the frontend application has grown in size and started
communication with various backend system, it has been observed
that most of the times if a new feature has to be added, e,g kind
of a new portlet has to be added which would only communicate with
one of the backend ear files, the whole frontend application has to
be rebuilt. Currently it is being hosted as an ear file on JBoss,
with a single SWF file.
Is it possible to host this Flex application as multiple ear
files breaking it down into multiple swf files, with each ear file
hosting one swf. In order to decouple all the applications on the
front end as well, but keep the user experience the same i.e
rendering all these ear files as one dashboard?
Any links advice would be greatly helpful.
Thanks in advance
