Define custom renderer for the cell's in question. The renderer gets the data for the entire row and can then compute the background color. I've had trouble actually setting backgroundColor in renderer but binding the backgroundColor to a private var and setting that variable to the color works.

Zkoss is a backend I believe. Although I don’t use BlazeDS, I believe that uses adoble’s AMF (binary) format. If so you would need to search for a javascript library that works with AMF. Perhaps BlazeDS has a flag you can set so it generates XML instead. Sorry I cannot help more.
