Adobe has announced plans to release source code for our remoting and messaging technologies. We are contributing a new open source product, BlazeDS under the LGPL v3, which is the same license used by Red Hat/JBoss.
RIA developers looking for better data connectivity options and performance can use BlazeDS technologies to connect to back-end data or push data to Flex and AIR applications.
Contributing these technologies under LGPL opens them up to all developers, and publishing the Action Message Format (AMF) protocol specification opens the door for implementation on non-Java back ends.
Look for the public beta of BlazeDS on labs as well as new beta versions of Flex and AIR.
