Types of Live Framework Applications


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.

    I am soooo looking forward to you covering them each, because as it is right now live mesh, the live framework and windows azure all seem to overlap from what i can tell.
