While browsing the demos and the forum I realized many people use RemoteObject for remoting and i wanted to point a very nice AS3 remoting library called SSR (Super Simple Remoting). Features like caching and paging makes it a great alternative to RemoteObject!
Links :
Also regarding Rails remoting there is a plugin named RubyAMF that I think is better than WebOrb for Rails
because it doesn't require configuration files and it's faster.
These two should definitely be checked out!
Please post your opinion!

I tried WebOrb for PHP and found it to be too bulky for my purposes. I chose to move to AMFPHP instead due to its small filesize and similar feature set. All I really want from a remoting gateway is the ability to easily configure and add services and to have code access security. WebOrb seems more suited for enterprise level applications where you need a commercially supported product. I've also found PHPAMF to be faster as well.

I'll have to look into SSR in depth soon.

SSR is very nice!
I use it for Flash and Flex applications. It gives me one method of remote calling to work with.
