I've seen a few blips on the radar screen about support AMF but would like to know if it's something more than a blip. Ideally, when can one get their hands on a version that supports it.

We have our own charting package so the AMF charts are not going to be support out of the box.

I apologize for not being clear...

I was referring to Adobe's AMF (Action Message Format) that can be used in conjunction with BlazeDS.

Hope that is more clear. ;)

I personally don't see a need as JSON is much better IMO... that being said, I feel the same way about XML too >:)

Thanks very much for the reply. We were hoping to know any status/update of it since TEDP mentioned it would be coming soon in his webinar last month.

We're trying to avoid, for now, refactoring our very large API suite from AMF to any other system.

James Ward's Benchmarks shown at http://www.jamesward.com/census2 tell a good story why we leverage AMF. B)
