This Flex Addon is a serious plugin for who is using Spring Roo in enterprise enviroment.

Have a look at the Flex Addon documentation:

Spring Roo brings brings a whole new level of productivity to building Java applications. From the Spring Roo Reference Guide:

"Spring Roo is an easy-to-use productivity tool for rapidly building enterprise applications in the Java programming language. It allows you to build high-quality, high-performance, lock-in-free enterprise applications in just minutes. Best of all, Roo works alongside your existing Java knowledge, skills and experience. You probably won't need to learn anything new to use Roo, as there's no new language or runtime platform needed. You simply program in your normal Java way and Roo just works, sitting in the background taking care of the things you don't want to worry about."

To learn more about Spring Roo itself, you'll find numerous resources from the project's homepage at

The Flex Addon for Spring Roo aims to raise the bar for developer productivity in building Spring-based RIAs with a Flex client by meeting the following goals:

  1. Provide the fastest way to get a Spring project configured to use Spring BlazeDS Integration set up and running.
  2. Eliminate the need to manually perform repetitive tasks such as keeping ActionScript and Java domain objects in sync.
  3. Automate round-tripping code-generation of Flex artifacts with a focus on letting developers do what they do best - write code.
