Lightstreamer Releases a Client
SDK for Adobe Flex
Lightstreamer, the streaming engine for AJAX applications, can now deliver real-time data to Flex applications.
Milan, Italy, September 3, 2007 – Lightstreamer is a technology for delivering real-time text data to any clients through the Web. Its server component implements a messaging system based on Http that can manage thousands of streaming connections, where data is pushed to the clients in real asynchronous fashion. Adobe® Flex™ is a cross-platform development framework for creating rich Internet applications (RIAs). A new software development kit (SDK) was released to develop Lightstreamer clients based on Flex and Flash technologies. Now Lightstreamer is a perfect fit for all Flex applications that need asynchronous notifications and messages based on a reliable, optimized and scalable protocol (for example, finance market data, online betting, auctions).
The new Flex SDK features a native ActionScript 3 library that handles the communication with Lightstreamer Server and offers a high-level API, used by Flex developers to exploit the publish/subscribe paradigm implemented by Lightstreamer. The Flex SDK, that is shipped as part of Lightstreamer Presto and Vivace editions, will be demonstrated at AjaxWorld 2007 West (September 23-26, 2007, Santa Clara Convention Center, CA).
