Welcome sir. Read the TOC and opening pages to your book and the reasoning makes a lot of sense to me. Should be some interesting questions coming up.

Hi Guys,
my name is Filippo di Pisa and I want to thank all of you to give me the opportunity to present my book.

Beginning Java and Flex is about what you need to know to start using Hibernate, Spring, Flex and Maven together, whether you are a Java developer or a Flex developer.

Probably there is more about Hibernate and Spring than there is about Flex, but this is because the Spring and Hibernate learning curve is more complex than that of Flex/Actionscript.

I didn't cover all Flex components in detail because I would have need a book just for them, and the Adobe Flex reference is quite complete; so I decided to focus on the most important ones to connect Java and Flex through BlazeDS and to present and manage data using layout containers, forms, datagrid, custom components and item renderers. I think that is all what you need to develop a RIA using Flex and Java.

Finally I created a Maven archetype that allows to create a Flex-BlazeDs-Spring-Hibernate project ready to go.

I really suggest to give a go to these technologies because there is a lot of learn from them.

I wrote also some chapters really for beginners to help them to configure their Java development environment.

At your disposal if you have any questions.
