Publisher Comments:

Flash Remoting MX lets developers easily integrate rich Macromedia Flash content with applications that are built using Macromedia ColdFusion MX, Microsoft .NET, Java, PHP, or SOAP-based web services. The result is complex client/server applications that more closely resemble desktop applications than traditional web pages. Gone is the click/wait/reload approach of HTML. Your web application uses Flash as the front end while Flash Remoting handles the communication behind the scenes with the application server. All the end user knows is that it's fast and flexible.

The potential uses for Flash Remoting are endless. Flash Remoting: The Definitive Guide will help you understand this breakthrough technology and use it to build your own Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Build applications that connect to a database, file system, or other server-side technologies. Or, use Flash Remoting to create:

  • online stores that feature catalogs and shopping cart systems
  • sound and video clip libraries
  • banner ads with built-in shopping carts, click-through tracking, and site search capabilities
  • new controls that can be used in place of HTML
  • extensions to Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and more
  • front-ends to databases for administrators
The book begins with Flash Remoting basics: setup, installation and an introduction to its underlying concepts. Next, you'll explore the Flash's User Interface components as they relate to Flash Remoting. Then, you'll gain insights into Flash Remoting internals and the Remoting API. The book is rich with examples that you will be able to run on your own system.

The next section focuses on the server-side environment that you'll use for your applications. Individual chapters cover Flash Remoting with ColdFusion, Server-Side ActionScript, Java, ASP.NET, and PHP.

The last section covers more advanced Flash Remoting techniques, such as calling web services from Flash Remoting, extending objects and UI controls, best practices, and debugging. Plus there is a detailed chapter demonstrating a real-world application. The book concludes with a Flash Remoting API reference.

Developers who are looking to create Rich Internet Applications with Flash will find Flash Remoting: The Definitive Guide indispensable.

Book News Annotation:

Flash Remoting resides on a remote application server and acts as a gateway to the server that translates client calls from a Flash movie into calls that the server can understand. This guide walks through the installation and configuration of each component, and explains how to use Flash Remoting with ColdFusion, Java, ASP.NET, and PHP. A familiarity with ActionScript and object-oriented programming is assumed.
