Overview: Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) are becoming more and more popular as the capabilities available to internet clients increase. There is a growing demand for RIAs to be able to store rich, structured, searchable data on the same machine as the web browser, and to be able to synchronize this data with a centralized data store running behind the web server. This paper from Sun Microsystems describes the flow and components of a synchronization architecture using standard APIs and mechanisms, and the possible approaches to making the application logic available offline.
