DreamFace Interactive Delivers Mashup Kit: DreamFace-Fx for Adobe Flex

DreamFace Interactive Announced the General Availability of the DreamFace-Fx Mashup Kit for Adobe Flex

Following the private Beta release last month, DreamFace Interactive announced the general availability of the DreamFace-Fx Mashup Kit for Adobe Flex. As promised, DreamFace-Fx is the first Mashup Kit to reach developers in a comprehensive roadmap which will extend the DreamFace Open Source Web 2.0 Framework to include complementary technologies. Olivier Poupeney, DreamFace Interactive CEO explains the choice of Adobe Flex for the first Mashup Kit, “There is a need today for RIA technologies in SOA applications, and Flex is getting attraction from the Java community thanks to its smooth integration with J2EE, however, using Flex usually means abandoning AJAX with the risk of being linked to a single technology. With DreamFace-Fx, developers can easily integrate Flex and AJAX, leveraging the combined technologies and resulting in functionality greater than the sum of its parts."

DreamFace-Fx Mashup Kit for Flex
The DreamFace-Fx Mashup Kit for Adobe Flex brings Flex into full play within DreamFace Interactive DataWidgets, Mashups and Applications. Flex is a highly productive, free open source environment for building and maintaining expressive Web applications and widgets. Now, with the DreamFace-Fx Mashup Kit for Flex, Flex-powered widgets can be freely mixed and mashed with ajax-based DreamFace DataWidgets. The DreamFace-Fx Mashup Kit provides full bi-directional integration with Flex applications. It sets Flex apps as first-class DataWidgets that can be personalized and shared and which can trigger and react to interactions and business rules like any other DreamFace DataWidget.

DreamFace-Fx: The Best of Both Worlds
DreamFace-Fx provides full integration between AJAX-based DreamFace and Adobe Flex and brings value to both communities by allowing developers to combine powerful features from each. “DreamFace-Fx is the best of both worlds, a win-win for Adobe users and developers and for the DreamFace Interactive Community with Flex providing one of the best RIA experiences on the market today, enhanced by DreamFace’s revolutionary Web 2.0 features, like user-profile driven personalization and user-defined DataWidget Interactions.”, comments Olivier Poupeney. DreamFace-Fx Mashup Kit for Adobe Flex is open-source and free to download from our website immediately.
