Adobe and SpringSource meet on RIA

Rich enterprise play

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Adobe Systems is collaborating with SpringSource on rich-internet applications combining Flash, AIR and PDF with open-source Java for the enterprise.

The companies Monday announced planned integration between Flash, AIR and PDF served up via the Spring Java framework and SpringSource platforms.

Adobe is working with SpringSource on Spring BlazeDS Integration, an open-source project for "tight integration" between Spring and Adobe's BlazeDS. A beta is due in a week or two.

Also planned is the SpringSource Adaptor for Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES, to integrate Spring with server-based push applications and content using Adobe's Flex. The adaptor is due for early next year, the companies said.

The work is significant for both companies. For Adobe, it means an established partner tuning the popular Spring framework to its open-source BlazeDS project. Specifically, SpringSource has productized Spring through its tc and dm servers, for web applications and Java.

SpringSource gets a toe hold in the growing RIA market. In this case, it means Spring, tc and dm servers can be used to serve up enterprise data to rich clients using video, audio, or AJAX, or it can adopt a plain paperless office scenario through Adobe's use of PDF. LiveCycle partners currently include SAP, IBM and EMC Documentum.

BlazeID is Adobe's server-based Java system for remoting and web messaging that Adobe said lets you easily connect to back-end distributed data and push data to Flex and AIR. LiveCycle Data Services ES, meanwhile, is designed to simplify the work of building server push-based and real-time systems. The system lets you track potential problems and provides features like synchronization and paging. ®
