Introducing FluorineFx

FluorineFx is the free and open source Flash/Flex remoting gateway, high-performance, scalable framework, streaming server that connects RIAs using Adobe software (Adobe Flash®, Adobe Flex®, Adobe AIR™ runtime) and Microsoft .NET®

The need for integrating RIAs into established technology platforms is rising; the client platform must be connected to back-end services and existing back-end systems must be extended. The purpose of FluorineFx is to provide an open source alternative for Flex/Flash Remoting, Flex Data Services, Messaging and real-time messaging functionality for the .NET framework. Additionally the framework provides client side libraries, like FluorineFx for Silverlight, bridging different RIA platforms.

FluorineFx’s key advantages are low total cost of ownership, reduced dependence on software vendors and easy customizability.
