Model Driven Delopment

Wow, its been three months since my last posting. I wish I could say that I have been using twitter to express all my thoughts to the web, but I don't use twitter so that wont work. :-)

Anyway, we are on the cusp of releasing LiveCycle Data Services (LCDS) 3.0 which has some really exciting improvements in how you can create Flex applications that use the LCDS Data Management functionality. I could wax poetic for a few hundred words, or you could watch Christophe Coenraets excellant MAX 2009 session on model driven development. He really shows off why this is such a giant leap forward in productivity and usability.

Dean Harmon and I did a very successful (I think, and the evaluations seem to agree) hands-on session about this same topic, but the hands-on sessions were not recorded.

You can get the "almost final" LCDS 3.0 bits on Adobe Labs right now and give this stuff a try.

Yes, the lab session was great and the docs too. Now I just need CF supporting it and LCDS become more affordable!

Price of LCDS is a big stopping block for us. We don't need PDF business just Flex remoting with all the interesting MDD features (Blazds is missing lot of them). Please provide us such version which is affordable and less features than complete LCDS but more than Blazds.
