Welcome to BlazeDS! BlazeDS is the server-based Java remoting and web messaging technology that enables developers to easily connect to back-end distributed data and push data in real-time to Adobe® Flex™ and Adobe AIR™ applications for more responsive rich Internet application (RIA) experiences.
The evolution to more engaging RIAs has created the need for better data connectivity options. Remoting simplifies the reuse of existing server logic automatically marshalling calls between the Flash client and the Java methods on the server. In addition, the use of a AMF binary data transfer format increases performance, allowing applications to load data up to 10 times faster than with text-based formats such as XML or SOAP.
Previously available only as part of Adobe LiveCycle® Data Services ES, Adobe is contributing the proven BlazeDS technologies to the community under the LGPL v3. BlazeDS gives the rapidly growing Adobe developer community free access to the powerful remoting and messaging technologies developed by Adobe.
The following are the top reasons to adopt BlazeDS:
Adobe has published the AMF binary data protocol specification, on which the BlazeDS remoting and messaging implementation implementation is based, and is committed to partnering with the community to make this protocol available for every major server platform. Please read the FAQ for further details on BlazeDS and Adobe's open source plans.
Adobe Systems offers industry leading solutions focused on the development of rich internet applications that include high levels of data integration. Adobe offers LiveCycle Data Services ES2 for those customers who require a commercially licensed version of BlazeDS or who wish to go beyond the infrastructure features of BlazeDS by adding higher level data functionality such as data synchronization, offline support for Adobe AIR, portal integration, RIA integration with LiveCycle Enterprise Suite business processes and document services, as well as more advanced deployment options for maximum scalability.
