Adobe Systems Inc. announced on Thursday plans to release to open source selected technologies in its LiveCycle Data Services suite of development tools. The technologies are used by developers to boost the data transfer capabilities and performance of rich Internet applications (RIA).
A beta version of the source code of the technologies was to be released on the Adobe Labs Web site today. The technologies are combined in an open-source tool set called BlazeDS, which can also build messaging and remoting capabilities into RIAs.
“The rich Internet application is about improving the user experience, making the user experience more intuitive and avoiding page refreshes,” said Christophe Coenraets, Adobe product evangelist. “But data transfer often becomes a bottleneck in these applications. You work to make that experience really rich, but at the end of the day, you will end up waiting for your data.”
