LiveCycle Data Services 3 Beta Available

LiveCycle Data Service 3 Beta 1 is now available on Adobe Labs.

The new model-driven development features in LiveCycle Data Services 3 offer a huge leap in productivity and ease-of-use for end-to-end applications. You start an application by creating a data model (a simple XML file) in the new “Modeler” editor that plugs into Flash Builder. From that model, you automatically generate data access logic on the server and Flex client code for working with the server code.

You can even generate much of a model by dragging existing SQL database tables into the Modeler editor. When you save the model, client code is automatically generated. When you deploy the model to the server, a fully functional Data Management Service destination is automatically generated on the LiveCycle Data Services server. You can support even the most advanced Data Management Service features just by creating and deploying a model.

Using Flash Builder with LiveCycle Data Services, you can now build simple or complex data-driven applications without writing any server-side code or configuration files. You can also take full advantage of the new Flash Builder 4 features for building the client side of data-driven applications.

We would love to get your feedback on this release and the documentation. To learn more:
