10. Calling Web Services from Flash Remoting > 10.2. Why Use Flash Remoting?

Why Use Flash Remoting?

One of the common questions about Flash is whether you can access web services using the Flash client only. Although Flash Player 6 requires Flash Remoting to access web services, Flash Player 7 has built-in SOAP support. However, the basic Flash 2004 authoring tool does not include the SOAP-based components that are standard in Flash Pro. Therefore, you must use Flash Pro (instead of Flash 2004) if you intend to use the built-in SOAP features of the Flash Player 7. As of this writing, it isn’t clear how Macromedia will prevent developers from extending Flash 2004 to support the SOAP enhancements available in Flash Pro. Licensing restrictions and encrypted libraries have been raised as possibilities.
