Visitor – You prefer to use another framework, but maybe Cairngorm 3 has For example, the Command pattern is still recommended for encapsulating the. Cairngorm is based on Model View Controller (MVC) framework, specifically designed to facilitate complex state and data synchronization. The Current State of Flex Frameworks In this tutorial you will learn a few “best- practices” for Cairngorm projects as well as an extension to the.

The List component the View knows about its model and is bound to it directly via its dataProvider property. So, is Tutorail right for your project? ModelLocator The Command class updates the data in the model typically, a collection of value objects defined in the global ModelLocator.

PureMVC is tutorixl framework for creating applications based upon the well-established model—view—controller design pattern. Suppose you have 10 [Bindable] String variables in the ModelLocator. The execute method can update the central Model, as well as invoke a Service class which typically involves communication with a remote server. These videos are in FLV format.

It aims at greatly simplifying the development of RIA applications through client-side data management, real-time messaging, transparent lazy-loading, paged queries, code generation and other features. It was open sourced in the summer of In Part 1I discussed the basic implementation and use of the ModelLocator pattern. Until they do — you can use the following:. David currently serves as a Software Engineer at Universal Mind. Flex frameworks are software libraries that assist developers in building rich internet applications on the Apache Flex platform.

IResponder; private var service: The event object may include additional data if required by the developer. Because this application does not save modified data anywhere other than in memory, no other ser vice calls are made to pass the changed data to the server side for persistence. Regardless of what framework you are going to use, separating various application components in project subfolders helps make the project more organized. The Command class then processes the event by running the Command class’ execute method, which is an ICommand interface method.


However, these videos were created by me over two years ago almost to the day. The View portion contains visual components required by your application, value objects, and Cairngorm-specific event classes used for communication with the Model and Controller tiers. To load the employees, the Command class creates an instance of the proper delegate passing the reference to itself this is how the delegate knows where to return the data and calls the method loadEmployeesService:.

David also recently completed the AIR 1.

The Delegate implementation package com. The problem with this approach frameworrk in the global nature of such an event handler. On the application startup, the code dispatches LoadEmployeesEvent and, as if by magic, the EmployeeList gets populated from Employees.

Online, you may encounter lots of debate regarding whether Cairngorm should be used in Flex projects.

The fact that Cairngorm is built around a Command pattern with a centrally located command repository can be very convenient for some projects that require audit or undo functionality. How ftamework it happen? Development managers who have to work with distributed fgamework of beginner or mid-level Flex developers and need a safety net to split the project work into smaller controllable tasks e.

There IS a Part 6 coming soon to the Cairngorm series.

It is specifically designed to facilitate complex state and data synchronization between vairngorm client and the server, while keeping the programming of the View layer detached from the data implementation.

To eliminate the need to import CairngormEventDispatcher in every view, starting from Cairngorm 2. You can find those here.

The other benefit is reusability of the modules. In reality, a lot has happened in the last two years — and I want to give more insight into my current frameworks choices. Even though framewor, binding can help in writing less code, because Cairngorm enforces data binding as the only mechanism of updating the views, it makes them nonreusable.

It requires developers to write lots of additional classes, which adds to project timeline. Please note that the code for the six participants mentioned earlier is organized in separate packages folders. If this application has been built using Cairngorm, each of these tuttorial becomes dependent on the central FrontController located in the main.

Stay ahead with the world’s most comprehensive technology and business learning platform. With Safari, you learn the way you learn best. Up to now the tutorials have covered only one design pattern, the ModelLocator, but now you will be introduced to the most crucial element of Cairngorm, the Service to Worker design pattern.

Software architecture Free computer libraries. Components on the View can bind to Value Objects or other properties in the Model data layer.

The IResponder interface, which is also implemented by the Command class, includes onResult and onFault methods to handle responses returned from the invoked remote service. Cairngorm has been around longer than any other Flex framework.

Read Chapters 2and 6and then decide whether you prefer working with the ttutorial described there or one of the architectural MVC frameworks. Get unlimited access to videos, live online training, learning paths, books, tutorials, and more. Meanwhile, keep these observations about Cairngorm in mind:. However, I have used Cairngorm on several large projects both at Georgia Tech and in my own business. As with all of the tutorials that will come in this series, this lesson has two parts.
