Flash Remoting for J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) allows Flash
clients to communicate efficiently with Enterprise Java applications
running on the server. J2EE is a collection of core Java features
plus standard application programming interfaces (APIs) for
enterprise-level services such as messaging, naming, and remote
components. This chapter discusses the details of using Flash
Remoting with Java applications. It assumes that you are familiar
with writing Flash Remoting clients as covered in earlier chapters
and with web application development in Java application servers that
support the Servlet 2.2 or 2.3 specifications. If you are not
schooled in Java and have trouble following the examples in this
chapter, consult the resources cited in Appendix B.
Flash Remoting for J2EE must be purchased separately from Macromedia,
although a trial version is available. For an open source
implementation, refer to Section 7.13 at the end of this chapter.
