I am modifying an existing application in JSP to Flex. Most of my application (nearly 50 jsp pages) display data from databases.
I would like to use flex datagrid to display the data fetched.What I am planning to do is to have a single flex datagrid component ,
that takes data from any of this backend table and display.Also I dont want to make any changes in the backend code and make use of it as much as possible .Already my back-end bean components take care of the data acess and the data is available readily as beans in jsp page. I am looking into ways of moving this data from JSP to Flex.
I am plannig to use a httpservice to achieve this.
httpservice - Convert the data in JSP to JSON or xml send it to a servlet from where the flex datagrid can access.
[a servlet that sits as a middleman and transfers xml from jsp to flex]
Flex Experts please let me know what is the best way to do this and your suggestions on my approach.
