RPE 2.0 is focused on usability, reuse and collaboration for the end user with the new Web Web Services being the way we intend to achieve these goals. The RPE 2.0 Web Services can also simplify the deployment and maintenance of RPE as they provide an alternative to the RPE Thick Clients for generating document.
