Flex-enabled WebORB Management Console
One of the features in the 3.0 release is our new management console. The console is a Flex application using Flex Remoting to talk to WebORB. It provides basic information one would look for to get started with the product, as well examples, client AS3/AS2 code generator, weborb deployment mechanism, licensing and a troubleshooting guide.
The console uses a ton of Flex features. I plan to post write-ups about our experience developing the console in the near future. Some of the things we had to do are:
- integration of IFrame with Flex's TabNavigator
- custom cell renderers in Datagrid
- populating a Tree view from a custom ITreeDataProvider
- managing Flex states
- dealing with File upload/download

There's a lot more we're going to add in the final release. For example, namespace/class/method security will let you select an item you want to secure and apply security restrictions. Server configuration module will provide a graphical interface for the WebORB configuration file.
