Been looking into Model-View-Controller frameworks to use with Flex and Java backend. The usual suspects are there, but we settled on Mate a while ago. The nice thing about Mate is that the View is completely clean of any notation if you use Injectors. This was really cool.
In looking at Mate and trying to understand it well, I also kept coming across Swiz. Now in comparison, Swiz is not as well documented and there are many varying examples which makes it difficult to get your head around it, but in the end it is very slick. The one thing I had to accept was the fact that there are Swiz specific annotations in the view Classes and thus these are not as portable as they were with Mate. Having said that, I think the design and the layout of Swiz is much better than Mate. It is more logical and easier to follow, once you understand it. I will explain what I know here and reference some of the sites I used to get an understanding of Swiz.
