So I hope that folks are familiar with the Labs site at Adobe where most of our latest projects are published.
I wanted to highlight some cool additions for Ajax / Flex developers that were posted this week. The first is AJAX Data Services.
The second is an update to previously published Flex-Ajax Bridge.
“The Flex AJAX Bridge (FABridge) is a small, unobtrusive code library that you can insert into an Adobe® Flex™ application, a Flex component, or even an empty SWF file to expose it to scripting in the browser.”
I think this is a hugely powerful way of extending Ajax applications. This makes it really easy to add pub/sub messaging and real-time data push to your applications. I’ll certainly be adding some samples to my demo collection.
