In simplistic words, by using Apache Tuscany and SCA to define your
your photo gallery component, you can decouple the business logic from
the transport infrastructure specific APIs; and then expose your
services trough multiple bindings such as webservices, web 2.0, etc
and although we don't have a flex binding today, one could easily
create a new binding in Tuscany to support it.  This should simplify
the framework and make the task of supporting a new type of client
(flex versus ajax, etc) much easier.
