Subject Re: [FlexJS] Some things still missing ni FlexJS

If someone has time, add some of these to JIRA.

Which, if any, do folks think are 1.0 requirements?  IMO, except for more
doc and tutorials, the rest of the list is optional for 1.0, but
volunteers are welcome to start now.  Other opinions welcome.

Some comments in-line...

IMO, this has two halves:  non-unloadable modules is relatively straight
forward to do.  Unloadable modules will be a ton of work.  IIRC, Flex 1.0
and I think even Flex 2.x grew its customer base without unloadable

There is a VerticalColumnLayout that attempts to do some of what I think
Flex Form did.  I didn't want to call it Form since that is a known HTML

I think Greg Dove wanted to use FlexUnit for unit testing.  What do folks
think of that idea?  We have metadata and reflection so we could do some
things that maybe the known JS frameworks can't.  But no objections to
using JS frameworks directly although not sure how to make them work in
SWF mode.

My early thoughts was to leverage ValuesManager for this, but that may
turn out not to be right.

Mustella uses Selenium for the JS side.  Run checkintests to see it.  It
is just early code and needs more work.  Volunteers are welcome.
