I am from java background, but I had developed simple projects mostly CURD operations and just a simple chats using Spring Blazeds.
But now I want to develop dash board and drill down charts. I have seen some sample , where the data is an XML which is mapped to flex objects and drill down is done.
But what I know is just call a remote java method which returns a map or list which I get as a Array collection.
Is it possible to acehive drill down with such java return type or does java need to return results only in XML, so drill down can be easy at flex end.
what is the best way to do ?
Almost all the examples comes with an static xml file available for the application, It would be great if any one can tell how to drill down using a List returned by java or any example of drill down backed by java.
You can try using the Data Centric Development (DCD) features of FB 4.0 and try using BlazeDS and LCDS workflows and bind the result to Flex Charts.
