WebORB for .NET® is a platform enabling development and runtime for Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). The product facilitates connectivity between rich Internet applications  and server-side components including .NET classes, WCF, SOAP and REST services. Supported RIA clients include Adobe Flex, Flash, Microsoft Silverlight and JavaScript(AJAX).


WebORB supports Adobe's Action Message Format (AMF) version 0 and 3 and can be used to process Flex and Flash Remoting requests. Additionally, WebORB provides an implementation of the RTMP protocol and supports the following real-time messaging and streaming features: Flash Video streaming, video recording, data push, server-to-client invocation and remote shared objects.


To facilitate creation of HTML/JavaScript rich client applications, WebORB includes the Rich Client System™. The Rich Client System is a framework that significantly simplifies connectivity between JavaScript clients and .NET objects. The APIs provide a communication stack designed to connect and execute synchronous and asynchronous invocations on a variety of server-side objects.


WebORB for .NET can be easily deployed into any ASP.NET application to enable connectivity between rich clients and application's classes and services. Additionally, WebORB for .NET can run in the standalone mode which does not require a web server.
