RebolMX anyone ??
One feature missing from this version of Flash MX is true server application
integration, but that's coming. ColdFusion MX, which is expected this summer, is
the first market evidence of the merger between Macromedia and Allaire.
Consisting of a Flash Application Server Gateway and a Communications server,
Flash authors will be able to integrate applications on J2EE and .NET servers,
as well as the ColdFusion MX server via a protocol built into the Flash 6 player
The application server gateway provides an interface between app servers and the
Flash client that goes beyond the useful but inflexible HTTP Get/Post
methodology Flash currently provides. Right now, Flash authors must build an
intermediary interface to server applications that can accept requests via HTTP.
Typically this entails an ASP, PHP, or JSP page that brokers requests to and
from a server application. The application server promises to eliminate this
The communication server promises to broker direct inter-client connectivity for
applications such as synchronous messaging. In addition, Macromedia will also
release Dreamweaver MX, which will add support for additional server and
connectivity technologies for Flash and application architects. If you've been
creating middle-tier pages to connect Flash clients to servers dynamically, you
will be glad to know that you won't have to do that much longer. Until then,
Flash MX offers an abundance of new features.
