Blaze DS connectivity framework

Blaze DS is the server-based Java remoting and web messaging technology that enables developers to easily connect to back-end distributed data and push data in real-time to Flex, in this session you’ll discover a small connectivity framework released open source that enable you to use MXML or ActionScript in order to simply connect to Java services under Blaze.

The ServiceConnector performs anonymous and logged calls to the server and the application is aware of the component that make the server side call and update the component trough an hash map.

Each component in the application can be developed with MVP and each presenter need to implement the IPresenter interface in order to leave the shell free to set the new data, in this way communication between remote services and client is easy to implement and intuitive.
