Sujit Reddy demonstrates using Flash Builder 4 for data centric development for Flash Player 10.1. The application developed here is consuming data from a Data Management Service destination of LiveCycle DS (LCDS) and so any changes to the data on the mobile devices is pushed to all other clients viewing the same data . the concept is very much like real-time push with RTMP , only in this case its using LiveCycle DS. Its basically a online mobile purchasing app. Very nicely done though :). You can read in details here at Sujit Reddy’e blog.
