Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced that it is working with SpringSource to simplify the development and deployment of rich enterprise Java™ applications through a collaboration that will provide integration between the Adobe® Flash® and SpringSource platforms. This collaboration will make it easy for Java developers to create enterprise-class rich Internet applications (RIAs) using Adobe Flex® software, a cornerstone of the Adobe Flash Platform, and Spring, the de facto standard for enterprise Java.
With support from Adobe, SpringSource is introducing Spring BlazeDS Integration, a new open source project to provide tight integration between Spring and BlazeDS, Adobe's open source server-based Java remoting and Web messaging technology. A beta version of the Spring BlazeDS Integration will be available from SpringSource in mid-December.
Also in development for early next year is the SpringSource Adapter for Adobe® LiveCycle® Data Services ES™ which will provide integration with Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES, enabling the creation of server push-based applications based on Adobe Flex for real-time and near real-time solutions.
The Adobe Flash Platform enables enterprise application developers to rapidly design and develop compelling Web applications that run consistently across operating systems and browsers. The interactive and Web experience capabilities enable developers to build business-critical applications that help improve user productivity and user acceptance and reduce service desk calls. LiveCycle Data Services ES software is a real time remote and messaging framework that streamlines the development of RIAs using Adobe Flex software and the Adobe AIR™ runtime by abstracting the complexity required to create data intense server push–based applications.
Kumar Vora, vice president and general manager for LiveCycle at Adobe:
- “Through this collaborative effort with SpringSource, we are bringing more efficiencies and workflow advantages to the Flex and LiveCycle developer communities. This opportunity opens up new doors for increasing the exchange of information between the platforms, which will provide a better overall user experience and allow more Spring developers to begin accessing the Adobe Flash Platform.”
Mitch Ferguson, vice president of business development at SpringSource:
- “Adobe and SpringSource share a common interest in providing better interoperability for Spring platform developers who want to optimize their work in the creation of rich Internet applications. Together we have established a plan for better integration among our products, from which SpringSource has introduced two new products to expedite the transfer of Java applications to Adobe Flex, BladeDS and LiveCycle.”
