How Does Flash Remoting Work?

The Flash Remoting gateway is installed on the application server and acts as an interface between the Flash Player and the server. The Flash Remoting software that implements the gateway is also called an adapter. It has three main tasks:

  • Handle requests from the Flash Player to remote services. These services can be on the same server as the Flash Remoting gateway or can be external to the server in the form of web services.

  • Translate requests and data from the Flash Player into server-side requests and datatypes.

  • Translate responses and data from the server into native ActionScript datatypes.
