This is the second of a two-part tutorial that will walk you through the development of a Rich Internet Application that will consume the Web service API we developed in Part I. We'll be writing an AJAX app with an embedded Flash component. Bring your favorite IDE and join the fun!
The first part of this tutorial walked through the development of a Web service API that exposes its endpoints via SOAP, REST/XML, JSON, GWT-RPC, and AMF.

Step 1: Set up the GWT application.
We first have to create our GWT application. We will use the name
