The next generation of Flex Data Services has been renamed to LiveCycle Data Services 2.5. There is now a public beta available for download.
The new name change reflects an important expansion in the use of FDS. While LiveCycle Data Services will provide enhanced integration with Adobe’s other LiveCycle server products, it will continue to be available separately, serving both Flex and now Ajax developers.
LiveCycle Data Services 2.5 has lots of exciting and important new features like improving Data Service Messaging performance, integration of RIA and PDF, J2EE portal integration and new capabilities that are important to future Apollo application development including local data caching and offline messaging.
