JavaFX and communication with backend
After following the JavaFX tech developments for a while, I can certainly see the benifits of rich client applications/ria's, deployed either as applets or using webstart. But I'm wondering what technologies are suggested to be used for the comms between the ria and the backend server over the web.
Guess that will have to deal with things like http firewalls, security, single sign on, session state, ie all the things 'normal' enterprise webapps have dealt with.
I think Adobe has Flex Data Services to address this.
What is Sun proposing in this area?
