FMIS vs LCDS for Real Time Messaging In Flex



A team that I am working with is launching development for a new Flex app. The app will have multiple text chat rooms and video chat too.

Since for video the architecture must include Flash Media Interactive Server (FMIS), the client assumes we will use FMIS for the text messaging.

My question is, for text chat what advantages does LiveCycle Data Services (LCDS) have over FMIS?

Does anyone here have experience with both that they can comment on? Can anyone provide links that might compare the pros and cons of LCDS vs FMIS? Or, dream come true, links providing comparisons of LCDS vs FMIS vs BlazeDS?

Any thoughts or assistance will be appreciated.
