IntroductionThe idea behind fxDao it is that Flex prototyped apps could use real data by defining ActionScript DAO classes which encapsulate data access logic, which means, SQL queries.
Once your prototyped (but really working) application will pass the POC phase, you can decide to rewrite ActionScript DAO classes in order to access server side web services.
Since DAO classes communicate within the application by exchanging Value Objects (VO) and lists of VOs (the so called model), you don’t have to change a single line of code in the rest of the application.
fxDao is bundled with a simple Flex client which has the only purpose of testing installation. A screen shot is shown below:
Query result is XML data packed with a REST approach but nobody prevent you to implement any other format. The format should possibly be the same of your web services, in orded to keep as much code reusable because VOs instantiation takes this data as its input.
How to donate?The easiest way to support this project (or offer us a beer) is by sending donations with Paypal.
Thank you so much!
