Architecture for Flash Remoting Applications

We conclude this chapter with a general overview of a client/server architecture using the Flash Player and the Flash Remoting gateway. Generally, Flash/server applications follow an n-tiered architecture. Figure 1-7 depicts such an architecture, comprising a client/presentation tier (the Flash Player), a middle tier (Flash Remoting gateway running within an application server), and a data tier (a database, XML file, or other data source).

Presentation Tier

The presentation tier is responsible for the application’s user interface (UI) and any client-side logic that is needed, such as client-side data validation. It communicates with the middle tier by sending and loading data on a request-driven basis. In most cases, the presentation layer consists of a Flash file embedded within an HTML page, but it can also be a Flash Standalone Projector running on the desktop, or even a Flash sprite within a Director Projector.
