Spring BlazeDS Integration 1.5.0 Stabilises New
The first release candidate of Spring BlazeDS Integration
1.5.0 is now available. This release focuses on stabilising the new
features introduced in previous milestones. Work has been done on
making it easier for HibernateConfigProcessor and
JpaHibernateConfigProcessor subclasses to customise the converters
used by the ConversionService. The Spring BlazeDS Integration team
have also worked to ensure that Spring Flex jars are built with
proper OSGi manifests. An ‘invalidate-http-session’ attribute has
been added to the ‘secured’ tag, and the type conversion API can
now be used beyond just Hibernate entities. More information is
available at the Changelog.
Spring BlazeDS Integration is an open source solution
for building Spring-powered RIAs with Adobe Flex.
