Breaking News: Adobe Announces Open Source Technologies for Enterprise RIAs called BlazeDS

December 13, 2007

Adobe today announced the labs release of its remoting and messaging technologies under a new open source product named BlazeDS.

This is particularly exciting for me as one of the biggest hindrances to the advancement of Flex in India was that companies were reluctant to buy license of LiveCycle ES, just for a data-push capability.

Previously available only as part of Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES, the technologies included in BlazeDS, along with the Action Message Format (AMF) protocol specification, are being contributed to open source under the Lesser General Public License (LGPL v3), and are available immediately as public beta on Adobe Labs.
