Adobe just anounced its plans to open-source the remoting and messaging code found in Live-cycle Data Services. The new project is called BlazeDS and is deployed as a J2EE application. This is really huge. There are many non-adobe or open-source projects to handle AMF remoting including classics like OpenAMF, but most don’t support AMF3 yet or are still in beta stages.
Along with this open-source project, Adobe also released its AMF3 specification. This should allow the community to develop AMF3 solutions for other languages and platforms. This is really great news for everyone and helps to move the AMF3 specification closer to mainstream.
