Hello, I just finish the book "Actionscript Developer's Guide to Robotlegs" and start to test robotlegs, and I love robotlegs. But I'm already building a project with BlazeDS with flex. I question is How good work robolegs with blazeds together?.

I'll like the feedback because I new with Robotlegs.

    You can use Robotlegs with any kind of services.
    The Service class in Robotlegs is just “a link” to the outside world, it handles the access to different resources (file system, remote services, assets, other applications). Robotlegs’ Services facilitate the communication between the external world and your application, while Mediators facilitate the communication between the UI and the application. They define the boundaries of your app.
    Services can extend Actor in order to be able to dispatch events, letting the rest of the application know that data has been loaded (or not) and update a Model with the results.

    If you’ve read the book, you’ve surely seen Chapter 7 too, about Models and Services. If you also downloaded the source code, then you can take a look at Joel’s PersonalKanban services classes.

    For further inspiration about configuring services:
    See how Joel is configuring the services, setting channels, by using a remote object factory (it’s not specific for BlazeDS) :

    using BlazeDS:

    Please tell us if it helps you get started. If it doesn't, then would you mind being more specific as to what kind of problems you're encountering?:)
