Adobe and BEA team on RIAs

Java package

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

BEAWorld BEA Systems is teaming up with Adobe to help developers build and serve up rich internet applications (RIA).

The Java middleware provider will bundle Adobe's Flex Builder 2 with the BEA Workshop Studio programming environment, while Adobe will distribute evaluation licenses of BEA's WebLogic Server with the Adobe LifeCycle Enterprise Suite (ES).

The Flex Builder 2 and Workshop combo is due later this year, and LiveCycle and WebLogic server are scheduled for early 2008.

LiveCycle is Adobe's integrated Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) package for building electronic forms and process management with document security and auditing.

The goal for Adobe's RIA strategy is to deliver rich online applications on the desktop outside the browser, while enabling these applications to access local resources, such as documents. Driving RIA is the Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR), which lets developers re-use skills in Flash, HTML, AJAX and Java.

BEA said the combination of Flex Builder and Workshop Studio will help developers to quickly and easily build new applications such as interactive dashboards. ®
