What is Artemis?
Artemis is a community focused project aimed at bringing external libraries to the Flex / Flash environment. The goal of Artemis is to provide features in the Flex / Flash desktop application domain that are not currently available. The Artemis framework allows a developer to create their own custom libraries (currently written in java with plans to support other languages) that integrate with a Flex / Flash Apollo application. Developers will be encouraged to share Artemis libraries they’ve built and discuss new features through this web site.
Interesting project, Keep an eye on its releases!!!
Christophe Herreman had come up with an IoC Container approach to set actual implementation of the remote services and the service locator in an external xml which helps to change the remoting gateway details without compilation hassles.
