    FlashMX admin GUI

    marc fleury Master

      I was demoed a FlashMX JMX GUI while in Palma and was impressed by the capabilities of that puppy. Just a GUI that would browse the JMX tree and allow people to update the values would be really neat. Any takers?

          A taker is here!

          The Flash App run so far as monitor.
          The code smell and the flash client is terrible slow. It is not possible to view all Mbeans in a -all jboss start, until the perfomance is so slow. (Flash xml parser sux)

          Believe me i use every free hour to work on it, but that are very few right know.

          BUT The flash client is just a joke.
          I plan to write a real gui based on the eclipse palttform. It should provide intepend views to the jmx server and filters.

          In far future it can provide too a interface to access ejbs. (a dynamic client)
          But this is more a moonshadow releated project.

          feel free to join me.. ;)

            You beat me to it! $#@@$. Oh well, I guess I can share.

            I was doing some research on this xml parsing problem. I found this link(http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/~bhall/killastuff/XMLnitro.as) that claims it can increase xml parsing from 75-130% on Flash 5. I haven't tested the code yet, but it may help you out.

            I checked out jbossadmingui.sf.net, but there's nothing there. Were you planning to host some test source code at that URL until this project finds a place in the jboss CVS repository?

            I'd like to help out and get more involved with JBoss. Since you've started on this path, we should share some notes. Are you planning on running with this Flash GUI or drop it(for eclipse)?

              We have written a Flash Socket Server and Flash Client for
              chat applications and multiuser games.
              The first time, performance of the Flash XMLSocket was very slow, the browser consumed 80% system resources on a 1 gig
              system.
              We solved this by not using nested XML tags. For our
              requierements (message driven system) this was OK.

              I don't know which XML parsing you are using, think there
              is a difference between XML sockets and other forms of XML
              parsing in Flash. My flash-part is on holiday, perhaps he
              could help out with Action Script code snippets.

                The way it really works is that the first one there wins :) there is no central planning, just running code usually,

                  Did anyone finish the FlashMX project?
