Presentation: "Data Synchronization for Rich Internet Applications"

Track: Sync

Time: Wednesday 10:30 - 11:20

Location: Rytmisk Sal

Abstract: Known as Rich Internet Applications a new class of software is gaining momentum. But as new technologies emerge so do new problems. Being more like the client-server architecture than the web architecture these applications must address problems like data sync, perhaps even for offline use cases. What are the solutions that exist in the RIA world to handle this age-old problem? With Flex-based RIAs there are a few solutions including the Data Management Service in Adobe's LiveCycle Data Services product. This session will explore and compare the Data Management Service with other alternatives. Comparisons will be done with live code rather than PowerPoint. Attendees will walk away with knowledge about how they can begin building RIAs which do data synchronization.

Technical Evangelist for Flex James  Ward

James Ward is a Technical Evangelist for Flex at Adobe and Adobe's JCP representative to JSR 286, 299, and 301.

Much like his love for climbing mountains he enjoys programming because it provides endless new discoveries, elegant workarounds, summits and valleys. His adventures in climbing have taken him many places.

Likewise, technology has brought him many adventures, including: Pascal and Assembly back in the early 90's; Perl, HTML, and JavaScript in the mid 90's; then Java and many of it's frameworks beginning in the late 90's.

Today he primarily uses Flex to build beautiful front-ends for Java based back-ends. Prior to Adobe, James built a rich marketing and customer service portal for Pillar Data Systems.
