I’m working on fixing some standing bugs on the Flash and Flex versions of Hessian this week. I’m pleasantly surprised at how many people are interested in this project and happy to get bug reports. People are comparing this project to BlazeDS, which I frankly haven’t had time to look at, but it seems that some people prefer Hessian.
Here’s a quote from user Koen Serry:
Since Hessian/Burlap are really a better alternative (on a flex client) for connecting to the backend than BlazeDS (which includes IMHO way too much dependencies as well as being not very developer friendly (eg. config file over convention)). Furthermore, hessian already proved itself on the numerous java fat clients.
If you’re using Hessian Flash or Flex, please let me know! I’m interested in seeing your applications, getting bug reports, or requests for certain kinds of documentation. Koen suggested a mail application example and I’d be eager to hear any other ideas people have.
