RemoteObject vs REST
Adobe and Microsoft appear to be at opposite ends of the spectrum with regards to RIA server data access. Adobe offers RemoteObject as part of LiveCycle ES – RPC service for Flex clients. Microsoft on the other hand appears to be going down the REST road – e.g. ADO.NET Data Services (code name “Astoria”). Will Adobe gain an advantage by sticking with RemoteObject?
