Maven Book and Flex Open Sourced

Maven From Andrew Williams:

Thats right, there is a new guide out there to help all those interested in Maven (or already using it) to get the most out of their build lifecycle. It is indeed the definitive guide and will be regularly updated so it stays that way. This book is produced by my colleges at Sonatype and is a free gift to the Maven community - no registration, no catches

More documentation has never hurt an open source project. Is the book open source too?

In other kick-ass news, Flex was open sourced today. Does this mean the server is open sourced too and we can run a Flex app for free? I see the competition between OpenLaszlo and Flex heating up in the near future. Both are pretty good if you like working with XML. Does your web framework have support for OpenLaszlo and Flex?

All in all, making that book available is a cool and good thing. I think the 'no registration' bit is funny... wonder if he's referring to the registration required to get "Better Builds With Maven". One critique is that it would be nice to have it some downloadable format.

Hey Matt, You can already run a Flex app for free without buying a Flex server. Are you referring to Flex Data Services? That you can run for free as well on one CPU, but FDS isn't required to run a Flex app. You can do plenty without it. Also, you don't have to write Flex apps in XML. Flex's MXML is compiled into ActionScript. You can write the majority of your app in ActionScript if you're wanting to avoid XML.
