Flexbuilder/Java project configuration

Thanks for writing the book - it's a topic that REALLY needs to be covered as Java moves into the middle and backend layers of Flex applications. One item that is glaringly missing from the examples I've found on the web are working functional examples of FlexBuilder projects that combine BlazeDS, Flex and Tomcat (along with Spring, Hibernate etc..) that are easily and seamlessly deployed to Tomcat via FlexBuilder as traditional webapps. Does your book include examples of this type of project configuration? If it does I'll buy it today!

Hi Mike,

Thank you for posting.
I have given many examples of creating Flex Builder projects including integrating Flex + BlazeDS + Java (JSP/Servlet/POJO) etc. Spring is not covered in this book for the obvious reason that this book is intended to the beginners so I wanted to keep things simple.

However, there are plenty of examples, code downloads and resources available on Flex + BlazeDS + Spring, go through following links and I hope you will find what you need. I will definitely try to cover this topic in my next book on Advanced topic.
