I have as suggested recently on this site been "playing" with arcgis server. For reasons perhaps not obvious to "real" programmers I have built a fairly extensive series of web mapping applications (not real applications) based on flex sample viewer.
It has been very difficult for me to understand the ins and outs of flex but am beginning to get a grip on it.
I stated these are not real applications meaning - when I get an "application working with all the widgets and layers, etc working.
I simply copy that folder structure and rename it to a new application name.
I then edit config.xml (notepad) and default.htm to reflect the new application name.
I don't own any programming software i.e. msvs, flashbuilder, etc.
Because of the power and marketing of apple, I am now in the dilemma of whether to find an x-code programmer to help with the esri IOS application, or switch to Java for all applications, and websites.
Is there an easy to understand resource for Java?
I'm certain there is nothing to convert my flex applications to java.
Has any had experience with what I am going through?
