BlazeDS vs Spring, and how easy to begin Flex development

2 questions for the price of one.

Looks like the book just covers Adobe's BlazeDS. Recently saw a demo at SpringOne2GX of integrating Flex with Spring BlazeDS and it was a pretty slick solution/demonstration. Just wondering if you're familiar with the BlazeDS "version" that Spring offers and what differs between the two.

Also, for someone who is familiar with javascript development, how tough is the transition to Flex?

Google for "Cairngorm MVC" and review the component configuration.

BlazeDS is meant to simplify the bridging of Flex and Java communication. I'm not too familiar with the version of Blaze offered by Spring, but you have definitely sparked my curiosity now.

Prior to dedicating all of my development to the Flash Platform, I was doing a lot of PHP (~gasps~) and a little C++, but had gotten heavily into Javascript, particularly Scriptaculous and Prototype. It was this that really made coding ActionScript easy to pick up. Plus I had done a good amount of work in Flash under my belt from college. So the short version of that is - yes, definitely

I think we all need to do a deep dive into the LiveCycle and BlazeDS. It is an essential part to making the front communicate to the Model (MVC).

Wow, I had forgotten about this post.

But thanks for answering! Since I posted that original question, I've picked up a beginners book on Flex (although I still have to read it ) and at first glance it doesn't look like too much of a learning curve.
