SpringSource just announced that the first public development milestone build of Spring BlazeDS Integration, the newest member of the open source Spring portfolio, is now available.
See Jeremy Grelle's announcement to the Spring community here:
Springy BlazeDS goodness!
Adobe and Springsource announced yesterday the integration betweeen the Flash Platform and SpringSource. More details can be found in the press release here: http://www.springsource.com/node/1077
1. REST support for BlazeDS and LCDS end points.
2. An option to configure BlazeDS and LC DS components using Spring configuration.
1. Create your business logic once and access it over AMF from Flex and REST from AJax/HTML clients.
2. Easy to expose your existing spring beans over AMF to Flex clients. This should help in migrating existing Enterprise Java applications to leverage Adobe Flex/AIR.
Note that this new integration adapter from Spring will work with existing versions of BlazeDS and LCDS. I'll post more details as more info becomes available.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Here, for history buffs is the U.S. Proclamation Establishing Thanksgiving Day, from President Abraham Lincoln on October 3, 1863, also found here: http://www.classicallibrary.org/lincoln/thanksgiving.htm
October 3, 1863
The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle, or the ship; the axe had enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years, with large increase of freedom.
No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.
It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.
