BlazeDS Beta 1 Documentation

Adobe has made a very exciting announcement. We announced a new open source data services project called BlazeDS. BlazeDS Beta 1 is now available on Adobe Labs.

BlazeDS contains the latest versions of the Message Service, Remoting Service, and Proxy Service that were previously only available as part of Adobe® LiveCycle® Data Services ES. BlazeDS is a server-based Java remoting and messaging technology that lets developers easily connect to back-end distributed data and push data in real time to Adobe Flex™ and Adobe AIR™ applications.

BlazeDS usage documentation is available in HTML format on LiveDocs and as a PDF file:

BlazeDS ActionScript and Java reference documentation is available in these ZIP files:

Information about setting up a BlazeDS project in Flex Builder 3 is available here:

Key features and benefits of BlazeDS are highlighted in the release notes. A great way to get started quickly with BlazeDS is the Test Drive application. The Test Drive is one of the sample applications included in the BlazeDS installation.

    What is “BlazeDS AS Langref” different from “Flex3 Beta3 Langref”??

    > A great way to get started quickly with BlazeDS> is the Test Drive application.The Test Drive application, while being interesting to use, is probably the most ill conceived way of learning how to use this. I don’t know about anyone else, but my idea of learning something does NOT include spending days poking around in obscure configuration files or searching thousands of blogs in the hope that someone has or will write a ‘Getting Started with BlazeDS’ article.All the existing and provided documentation seems to be aimed at existing users of LiveCycle and those who are already in the know.Nice try. Big flop. When you have some proper documentation available, announce it with the same vigor with which you announced BlazeDS and maybe then, we could be persuaded to get excited a second time.
