Chapter 15. Application Design Patterns ... > Moving Code to the Server

15.2. Moving Code to the Server

We all want to build scalable, efficient, and easy-to-maintain applications. In this section, we try to convince you that moving application logic to the server-side is the best way to accomplish that goal.

Flash programmers who first start working with FlashCom may not immediately see the value for splitting up code—especially objects—so that part runs in the client and part on the server. In fact, the FlashCom API gives so much power to a Flash client that it may appear there isn't any reason to write Server-Side ActionScript beyond controlling connections. However, the longer you work with FlashCom, the more you recognize the importance of server-side code. Server-side scripts are often safer from a security standpoint and help to simplify designs and code; you should consider them the backbone of your applications.
