I am starting to learn Flex development. I've been a designer all this time and worked on Flash, but now moving onto Flex. Started with Flex in a week and on day 2 at the moment.
Fairly new to programming languagues - I mean so far the understanding is only to the knowledge level, not towards scripting or implementing programming codes.
Already have a live project to work on...where someone has suggested to use Blaze DS with Flex, now since I am already learning Flex, .... would it be a good idea at all to start exploring Blaze DS as well ???
What we are trying to do is show a difference between a report generated out of HTML based pattern compare to Flex Data technology. The idea is to project Flex is much faster. So we have decided to show the same using Blaze and AMF (binary format) which is faster compare to HTTP service.
Please I would appreciate all the suggestions to help me move to the right direection and learn Flex effectively and quickly.
Thanks and Regards
Here's a good article from Christophe in the Adobe Developer Connection to get you started looking at how to use BlazeDS:
Hope this helps you get started.
Thanks for the link buddy, its a good start. I have downloaded blazeds turnkey, havnt been able to install it yet, working on it.
ALso going through some good videos on Adobe TV, helping clear the understanding behind the working of the technology.
Could you please share the links for the Blaze DS videos whcih you found useful?
