Top Ten Reasons to buy Macromedia Flash Remoting MX

  1. Easy Access to Business Logic
    Access web application services, XML documents, and web services quickly and easily using powerful new Macromedia Flash Remoting MX ActionScript commands. Flash Remoting MX enables you to expose well-defined application APIs to Macromedia Flash as simple ActionScript APIs, enabling easy workflow between UI designers and back-end developers.
  2. Easy Access to Web Services
    Access SOAP-based web services directly from Macromedia Flash using built-in SOAP 1.1/WSDL 1.1 proxy capabilities, enabling Rich Internet Applications to access and use remote web services—even when they're outside the originating domain.
  3. Support for Leading Web Application Server Technology
    Flash Remoting MX supports today’s leading web application server technologies—including Macromedia ColdFusion, Microsoft .NET, and Java—enabling the use of Macromedia Flash as a rich user interface for a wide range of business applications.
  4. Easy Testing and Debugging
    Streamline testing and debugging of the most complex applications using the NetConnection Debugger. Developers can watch and trace events across both the client and server, reviewing detailed information about the data and instructions passed between them.
  5. Simplified Recordset Handling
    Use new Flash Remoting MX APIs for recordset handling and databinding. Simplify the use of recordsets within Macromedia Flash, enabling rich client applications to be front-ends for standard relational databases. Binding recordset data to a scrolling list or datagrid is now a simple operation.
  6. Fully Supports XML Use
    Seamlessly access any remote service that accepts or returns XML documents. Flash Remoting MX parses and translates ActionScript XML objects on the server into an org.w3c.xml DOM, making any remote service (a CFC, a page, an EJB, a Java class, a .NET DLL, etc.) that accepts or returns XML documents, or both, seamlessly accessible to Macromedia Flash. Developers who are currently using SOAP for custom XML documents can now easily expose them to Macromedia Flash clients in a simple model, eliminating the development of server-side parsing previously required when passing an XML stream from Macromedia Flash.
  7. Promote Well-Designed Applications
    Create well-designed Rich Internet Applications by using Flash Remoting MX to implement a three-tier or n-tier model, with a clear separation of presentation logic from business logic and data.
  8. Seamless Integration With Important Application Server Services
    Utilize built-in application server features, such as security and session management. Flash Remoting MX ensures that security and session management mechanisms work between rich Macromedia Flash clients and application servers.
  9. Deploy in Your Native Application Server Environment
    Flash Remoting MX for Microsoft .NET is a pure .NET implementation that runs as 100% managed code, exploiting the benefits of .NET by providing optimal performance, functionality, and security. Flash Remoting MX for Java is a 100% pure Java solution that can be deployed as a WAR or EAR on compliant Java application servers.
  10. Deploy Consistently Across Platforms and Devices
    Deploy consistently to over 455 million Internet users across all major platforms and devices. The Macromedia Flash Player is the leading rich client, installed on over 98% of all Internet-connected devices. Deploying Rich Internet Applications built with Macromedia Flash MX and Macromedia Flash Remoting MX requires no additional client software deployment.
