Develop a a proof of concept Flex UI
Develop a proof of concept UI based on Flex. The UI will demonstrate our capability to use the Flex development tool chain (using Eclipse) and validate the architecture based on the SOAP Web service, relational DB and Flex-based UI. An important aspect is to show that the web service can operate on XML descriptions for its inputs and outputs, therefore, limiting the number of implemented web service operations and allowing for extensibility of the service. The initial approach will be to use the web service to access and manipulate the data in the database, therefore, providing encapsulation and isolation of the data model from the application.
