I m somedays away to release the version 2.1 of gwt4air. gwt4air is an open source project based on gwt (http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/) and provides a Java API to different platform where Java is not the primary language.
Version 2.0 added among other features support for Adobe AIR, Alive PDF, Pure PDF, Aswing and other GWT based UI libraries like EXT-GWT
With version 2.1 i added support for Flex(AIR and Browser). The goal of this approach is to make it easy for Java Developers to switch to Flex be leveraging a swing like API. But also to present an alternative to the classical Flex developement. The overall idea behind this is described here:
A demo application ca be found here: http://gwt4air.appspot.com/
The application contains around 100 demos with source code illustrating the use of the api.
I ve tried to keep the API similar to the AS3 api so one could easely switch from AS3 to Java and vice versa
Note that this flex applicaton is entirely written in Java using gwt4air. No AS3 no MXML.
The application is still in alpha stage so please expect some errors.
The project home is located at:
I m looking forward to hear what you think about this idea. Any inputs (good or bad) is really welcome
Help me make this an even better tool.
It s about time that Flex rocks the GWT world
It looks like those genius @google are also thinking about a Java(GWT) API for Flash .
Glad to see that i m not a fool
Or alteast not the only fool that believe combining Java and Flash/Flex is a potent mix.
