11:48
I have noted all questions. Will probably ask them at the end. Outside the hall now.
11:58

@veertag answer to your question is blazeds http://opensource.adobe.com/blazeds
1:00
From Dcooper : With BlazeDS, developers can easily connect to back-end distributed data, as well as push data in real-time to Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR applications for more responsive RIA experiences. BlazeDS is being contributed to open source under the Lesser General Public License (LGPL v3) – the same license used by Red Hat/JBoss, which is good.

Java Spring Developers have a look at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/livecycle/articles/blazeds_spring_02.html

[Comment From Vinay]
Dude… is cloud computing a part of any of the discussions?
1:16
@Vinay NO. This is about rich internet applications.
1:33
AIR apps use webkits for rendering. Running on Safari would be a good way of testing while coding.
1:44
Wow its so easy to build an AIR app. Code in HTML/JS and then convert.
1:44
Now James is on the stage

[Comment From Vinay]
If possible take some pics man (I presume you maybe already doing that :) ). We can have a look at what they are in one of your blog articles.

BO reports look great on AIR. we should demo this to some insurence/banking clients.

We have 4 guys on the stage who are demoing their products built on stage. Only the guy from cognizant is in suit and is giving power point presentation. So boring :)

Best practice session for FLEX by James

lot of gyaan on what to do and not to do with Flex
4:52
[Comment From Veetrag]
One more query Thej, Can you ask what will it take for enterprise to accept Flex fully? e.g. When can banking industry make full apps using Flex? It works perfectly for RIA, mashups but still enterprise is very reluctant to use it.
5:04
@veertrag there was demo by business object guy about report AIR application. I will try to catch him and ask ur Q.
5:15
Not very interesting questions. Some very obvious questions.
