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.
