Microsoft plans to provide a clearer view of how developers can create APIs to leverage Live Mesh in their next Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in October.

Live Mesh that is originally introduced as a files and data synchronizing services across multiple platforms and devices, is getting  a little new orientation towards developing "cloud based" client services and platform.

Up to now, Microsoft did not refer Live Mesh to a cloud computing service. Cloud computing services are such as Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service. But this step can take Live Mesh far in could computing services.

Developers may be able to make applications that are much more like Windows applications and run on Live Mesh's online environment.

Jeffrey Hammond, an analyst with Forrester Research says:

"It's interesting to see them expanding it," he said. However, Hammond said he doesn't think the information Microsoft has provided so far about Live Mesh "sufficiently helps me understand what it is."

At present Microsoft has not gone far as EC2 in Live Mesh but lets see in future as cloud computing is at its high stakes.
