Hi Joost,

Shameless plug:
I'm writing a PDF-only book about using Flex 2 with Ruby on Rails.  I doubt that the Flex code should be considered "best practices" yet, but it's all Open Source (MIT license) so you can use it in commercial projects regardless of whether you have bought the book.

If you're interested, go to http://www.flexiblerails.com/ and download the latest iteration (currently iteration 18) from the code samples page ( http://www.flexiblerails.com/pages/codesamples).

It's not that large at the moment, but it's growing with every release of the book.  When the book is done it should fit the description of a "big sample project" quite well.  (The code example in the book is cumulative, so the app is growing into a full-featured app with every iteration...)

Best regards,
Peter Armstrong

Last I saw the JBoss code was still only good for Beta 3 of Flex, and didn't work with the release version. Has this changed?

The open source JBoss Mail Server (aka Collaboration Server) might fit the bill:

And the Flex 2 UI was coded by Adobe's own James Ward using the Cairngorm framework for Flex 2!

So, it is big, it is free, and it implements best practices.

fyi ... there are forums for the project at:
Also the project's lead committer, Andrew C. Oliver, presented earlier this month at the Ajax World Conference on a " Case Study: The JBoss Flex-based Mail Client".

If you do go through the code on this project, please do post back with you impressions.

Anybody else know of other open source projects using Flex UIs?

Subject: [flexcoders] 'big' sample projects

Are there any complete sample sites where the source is free? I would like to know how I can setup a complete site, with logindialogs, errorhandling, different components, etc., I did some tutorials of the with flex delivered getting started guide but I mis some big sample projects for learning how big projects can be made.
