p. Andi Gutmans, the CTO of Zend, blogged yesterday about a new proposal making it’s way through the Zend Framework process.
bq. Adobe has made a “proposal for an AMF (Action Message Format) component”:http://framework.zend.com/wiki/display/ZFPROP/Zend_Amf in “Zend Framework”:http://framework.zend.com/. This ZF component will allow for client-side applications built with “Flex”:http://www.adobe.com/products/flex/ and “Adobe AIR”:http://www.adobe.com/products/air/ to communicate easily and efficiently with PHP on the server-side. Leading the design of the component for Adobe is “Wade Arnold”:http://wadearnold.com/blog/. Wade already has a track record of bringing the Adobe RIA technologies to PHP as a result of all of his work on AMFPHP.
p. I know everybody over on the Zend Framework team is real excited about this proposal. If you work with Zend Framework then you are going to want to keep an eye on it.
