We get a lot of questions from developers and architects about some of the major differences between BlazeDS and GraniteDS. They are quite significant. You can compare some differences already in a quick comparison table on our website, but we’ve created a more detailed comparison in the presentation below. Please feel free to share this presentation!

The presentation highlights some of the main advantages of GraniteDS in the following areas:

  • Licensing and Support
  • JPA Integration
  • Remoting
  • Real-Time Messaging
  • Client Frameworks
  • Validation and Numeric Types
  • Mobile Platforms Support

Flex Connector 1.1 for Nuxeo Released With GraniteDS

By admin August 31st, 2011 Flex, GraniteDS No Comments

Nuxeo is a global leader in Open Source Enterprise Content Management (ECM), that enables architects and developers to easily build, deploy, and run state of the art applications. The Nuxeo Enterprise Platform (Nuxeo EP) is a Java-based content infrastructure designed to be used as a development environment for content- and case-based applications. Nuxeo EP is an extensible and configurable set of ECM services and modular plug-ins that allows an organization to build out specific horizontal or vertical applications.

Nuxeo has just version 1.1. of its Flex connector that lets Flex applications interact with Nuxeo using AMF, the binary format used to serialize ActionScript objects. The Nuxeo Flex Connector relies on GraniteDS to enable to easily read, search, create, update documents stored in Nuxeo, manage workflows and tasks, use conversion services, manage users and send notifications, etc. The following image highlights the integration:

To learn how to use the connector, please refer to the Wiki – . The Flex connector comes with several samples that will help you get started quickly.

So what’s up next? Nuxeos first goal is to update GraniteDS and the Flex SDK. The current implementation will have to be updated to the lastest 2.2 version of GraniteDS and all sample applications will be built on Flex4.

We are happy to see GraniteDS in use and look forward to powering the Nuxeo Flex applications!

Thumbs up everybody, for some Rock and Roll!!!

This coming Friday, we will rock and roll with our great friends in Brazil. The conference has attracted over 4,000 developers last year and the crowd this year is expected to be even larger. It will take place from, 2011 and Franck has been invited to give a speech.

Why are we so excited about speaking at the conference? For a couple of reasons, actually.

First, Brazil has one of the most active Flex communities globally and GraniteDS enjoys a large user base in Brazil. This is great and we are excited to learn more about the community and get in touch with everyone via this conference. We are excited and a little proud to be among such a prestigious group of elite flexers!

Second, the Flex Mania conference is unique in that it provides developers from even the remotest areas access to state of the art speeches and presentations, as the entire conference will be held online via Adobe Connect. We think that’s great, in particular because it helps to grow the community in regions where long travel to expensive conferences would present a significant obstacle for many to actually participate. Therefore, a shout out to the awesome who is organizing this years event!

And finally, we are of course excited to announce some cool updates about GraniteDS. Franck will be giving a general overview of the GraniteDS platform and will highlight some of the new features in the 2.2 release (bean validation and big numbers on the Flex side) and some of the current developments (native support for the Android/iOS platforms). Also, Franck will show some highlights about the scalability of asynchronous servlets used in GraniteDS for real-time messaging.

Watch the conference live at and join Franck for his session on Friday, July 8 at 10am ET!
