Enterprise RIA with Spring 3, Flex 4 and GraniteDS

  • submit to reddit


That was a long article, but at least I hope it gave you a good idea about the client+server RIA platform concept of GraniteDS. Applications can be written faster with a lot less code, and still have a clean architecture with clearly separated layers.

With the Data Push part of the tutorial, what facilities exist within the framework to identify the source of an update to avoid adding a new author twice to the list? As it currently stands, when I take this code "as is" and add a new author, the code 1. Adds the author to the authors list at creation time. 2. Adds it a second time as a result of the observer. I suppose the trusting solution is to maintain the list only via the observer.

@Nuttapong : Not sure what happens here, maybe try to reset you maven repo.

@Arthur : Right, the recommended solution is to keep only the observer. Unfortunately there is currently no way of knowing where the update comes from (local, remoting or push).

I had to specify a version for maven-jetty-plugin to get it to run inside of Spring STS IDE.  Great tutorial too - thank for writing it up!

Hi there,

I am unable to extract the extended data from the validation exception, as described in the example:

function(event:TideFaultEvent):void {

    if (event.fault.faultCode == 'Validation.Failed') {        // Do something interesting, for example show the first error message-->        Alert.show(event.fault.extendedData.invalidValues[0].message);    }}
 The problem is that fault (type mx.rpc.Fault) has no extendedData property and the property cannot dynamically be accessed. Is this due to an API change? Or am I doing something wrong?

I failed to do jetty:run-war after creating the archetype, getting a java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: javax.persistence.spi.PersistenceUnitInfo.getValidationMode()Ljavax/persistence/ValidationMode; The version ins persistence-api 1.0 doesn't have this method, but it was being pulled in as well from the hibernate-jpa-2.0-api-1.0.0.Final.jar So I removed the dependency: javax.persistence persistence-api 1.0 From the java pom and re-build and that seemed to get me going.

Hi, Great article! I was wondering if there was a way to access your completed exmaple/application to see the entire sources of everything. I can't find a d/l link anywhere in the tutorial and the archetype project doesn't include any of your more detailed classes/interfaces/etc. Thanks! Eric

According to this http://www.graniteds.org/jira/browse/GDS-846 this error was fixed in 2.2.-_SP2 but I updated my pom to this version of granite and the same error occurs. I guess it didn't get fixed...

Thanks. This is very nice article to get started. 

Can you please add or guide how to get flexmojos wrapper goal working? 

Gary Huitson replied on Wed, 2012/09/12 - 10:03am in response to: Richard Van Der Laan

I think theres a mistake in the example code

The line should read...


The extendedData is a property of event not event.fault
