Flex and .NET

Your Flex application can retrieve data from a .NET backend using web services, including SOAP and REST based web services. You can also transfer objects and other data types directly from .NET to Flex, and vice versa, over AMF, using WebORB for .NET or this open source AMF.NET tool.

Fluorine is another open-source remoting gateway for .NET and Flex development. Sam Shrefler has written some tutorials that use it on his blog. The first tutorial uses Flex, Cairngorm, Fluorine and ASP.NET, and the second adds support for the Flex RemoteObject. Sam also has a sample that uses .NET, Flex and JSON.
