Re: [flexcoders] Best Java addon for Flex
- As Fotis said, I suggest you keep it simple to start. Your first choice will be what to use to make Flex communicate with Java. Fotis suggested BlazeDS, I personally use GraniteDS. May be you can look at their documentation and see what you can do with it and what suits better your needs.
Then you can start playing with Java/Java EE technos and frameworks, but that's a bigger work ;)

That depends on your estimated traffic + various other staff...
Spring, hibernate and so on are powerful but have a steep learning curve plus they add complexity (and possibly bugs..).
Start simple, have a servlet based backend combined with blazeds.
If on the other hand you are planning / implementing for hundreds of concurrent users go for spring, hibernate, caches and so on.
It all depends on your needs.
I find that a simple servlet (1 single servlet) is quite enough for something simple, such as a game or small app.--

I have been coding with Flex for a few years using PHP as my back end. I am looking to learn Java, and I have a few questions. I understand the Java language from all the other programming languages that I know. If I want to interface Flex with Java, should I lean Spring or what? I am asking the group, what/how do you use Java with Flex?
