Subject Re: Flex front end
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2007 19:47:34 GMT

I don't think there is "why" to use struts and flex together.
Flex by itself is the hole View and controler part. When using with Java,
through Flex Data Service or Remote Function Call, Java becomes responsible
for the Model layer, and nothing more. The other things are inside
ActionScript scope.

The biggest problem of Flex is to make sure everybody that will use your app
have the FlashPlayer 9.0 or higher.
