Macromedia Flash Remoting

Flash Remoting serves as the layer of communication between Flash and the application server. Developers will now be able to interact with different application servers, such as ColdFusion, Java, and .NET servers. All communication will be handled via the new Action Message Format (AMF), which works over HTTP. The server-side component of Flash Remoting, known as the Flash Gateway, allows developers to make calls from Flash to the application server. Flash Remoting classes are available in ActionScript that allow Flash to communicate with the server through the Flash Gateway. These classes are known as NetServices and offer increased performance and functionality over older methods.

Figure 23.2 shows where Flash remoting fits in with application development.
