I've spent the last few weeks reviewing and testing different toolkits for a project that's evolving from a Django prototype and Spring Roo is top of the list.
We need to have a RIA as users will navigate and manipulate large sets of research data so we have committed to using Flex.
I've tried to integrate Flex as an addon but have had no success. I've even used previous versions of Roo and the Flex addon and got the code generator to work but with Exceptions at the end.
I know I can achieve what is needed without the slick Roo console but wondered if the Flex addon is abandonware? Flex integration is highlighted as a technology that can be "instantly leveraged" but also mentioned as "actively in development". It certainly doesn't work out of the box - or maybe I'm at fault? This really would be a killer feature for developing apps for the research community! It seemed so simple using the intro at: INTRODUCING THE FLEX ADDON FOR SPRING ROO.
Is there commitment to fixing the Flex addon / BlazeDS Integration? Has anybody got the latest version of Roo working with the Flex addon / BlazeDS Integration?
The example FIRST PROJECT - ROO STANDALONE on the Roo landing page needs the following step for GWT to work:
roo> web gwt all --proxyPackage com.foo.client.request --requestPackage com.foo.client.request
