Beta 3 of AIR/Flex 3, BlazeDS and BRIO!

On Adobe Labs the new betas for AIR and Flex 3 are available for download.

As this is really cool the biggest news from yesterday is that BlazeDS is available first time on labs:

“BlazeDS is the server-based Java remoting and web messaging technology that enables developers to easily connect to back-end distributed data and push data in real-time to Adobe® Flex™ and Adobe AIR™ applications for more responsive rich Internet application (RIA) experiences.”

In the past there were (and still are) LiveCycle Data Services. Now BlazeDS which is the remoting/messaging part, will be released Open Source under LGPL v3 and the code comes in early 2008. Until then try the beta and check the AMF binary data protocoll specification! This is huge! Christophe Coenraets blogged a nice introduction and check the press release for more info.
Last but not least BRIO beta was released a few days ago:

“Brio is a web meeting service built with collaboration in mind for individual professionals and small businesses. With Brio, you can instantly communicate and collaborate through an easy-to-use, easy-to-access online personal meeting room.”

BRIO is based on Flex and is so easy to use and comes with a slick design. Be sure to check at it out as it will improve collaboration in an industry leading way.

Is very exciting to see how the Flex technology changes the way of these days software. Mike Potter wrote a summary of Adobe technologies based on Flex.
