Hello. I've been building client-side apps with flex for a while and have started getting into backend development.
I have read up a fair bit on blaze ds and have downloaded the turnkey installation and successfully ran a few of the samples...but i have a couple of questions re: the directory structure if someone could help...i unzipped the turnkey into Blaze_ds folder on the desktop...
a) .........\Blaze_ds\tomcat\webapps\blazeds\WEB-INF - could u please explain the concept of the WEB-INF directory and the folders inside it (flex, src, classes, lib, etc.)
b) ......... \Blaze_ds\tomcat\webapps\samples - there are all the samples in here (eg. testdrive-chat, testdrive-101, dashboard, etc.)...and there is also a WEB-INF and META-INF folders...just wondering why there isn't WEB-INF/META-INF inside each sample folder
Finally, can someone also let me know the concept of localhost and the port number 8400 and are there any good books on blaze ds?
