There are two types of application that you can build using Live Framework:
1. Mesh enabled web-application
- AJAX or RIA Silverlight apps
- Hosted in Live Mesh
- Uses Live Framework
- Support Application Lifecycle:
- Users – Discover, License/Subscribe, Use, Share, Socialize, Update, Uninstall
- Developers – Evaluate, Develop, Test, Publish, Market, Analyze, Update
2. Any other application
- Anything that can talk HTTP
- WinForm, WPF, Silverlight, iPhone app, Flash app etc.
- Uses Live Framework and Live Services endpoints
- Easy to take your existing code and add new capabilities
I’m going to be exploring some scenarios in future posts that cover each type.
