Christophe Coenraets, a senior Flex Evangelist from Adobe has published a blog showing a number of sample Flex applications that communicate with Java on the server side.

His blog “30-minutes Flex test-drive for Java Developers” is a recommended read for Java developers and architects who are ready to consider anything else besides Java Swing or AJAX for creation of their Rich Internet Applications.
Also, there will be a couple of free Flex-for-Java presentations for software developers who work in New York City or in New Jersey:
On September 13, myself and Victor Rasputnis of Farata Systems will present at Java users group in New York City at Google’s offices. Register today if interested, there is only a hundred seats available on the first-come-first-serve basis.
