Chapter 7. Flash Remoting and Java

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.
