Rich Internet Applications and the Service Oriented Client
Kevin Lynch, Senior Vice President and Chief Software Architect, Adobe
There has been tremendous innovation in creating Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), providing access to open data, messaging, persistence, operating system independence, and clean development patterns. To date this effort has focused primarily on the server, leaving challenges on the client side: web clients don't have native support for SOA connectivity, the data access mode l is request-only, there are operating system and browser-specific dependencies, and the display model is fundamental ly page-based, not application-based.
Service Oriented Clients will emerge to complement the capabilities of SOA and deliver rich, effective experiences to the user. This talk presents a services oriented client that enables compelling, rich experiences, including a strong data model, native access to services, message queuing, persistence, best-practice development patterns such as MVC, and predictable operations across browsers, operating systems and devices.
