6. Server-Side ActionScript > 6.6. Extending Server-Side ActionScript with Java

Extending Server-Side ActionScript with Java

Server-Side ActionScript is written entirely in Java, and one of the tremendous advantages of SSAS is that you can extend it in Java as well. If your workplace consists of ActionScript programmers who will be assembling server-side methods using SSAS, a few custom Java functions can provide any functionality that SSAS is missing. For example, the JRun 4 implementation of SSAS is missing the CF object, which is required for database queries. The functionality of the CF object can be mimicked in Java and used from within SSAS. Similarly, the file and directory manipulation techniques of ColdFusion, Java, and ASP.NET are missing from SSAS; these too can be added using Java. I’ll show a few simple examples of possible extensions to SSAS and then show a simple CF object with a query( ) method that can be used from within JRun 4.
