Sometimes, it’s good to be lazy. I’ve played a little bit with the new Data-Centric features of Flash Builder 4. When you combine the PHP service generation, the service introspection, and the visual data-binding on Datagrids or Charting components… you obtain a dashboard without typing any line of code. In this video, I start from scratch. I just have a MySQL database and a PHP server running. Few minutes later, I’ve got a Flex dashboard connected to my MySQL table. Amazing. Furthermore, the generated code is neat and I can extend it. Am I lazy or efficient?
