Flash CS5 Remoting

Jul 18, 2010 3:26 AM



I've been searching high and low for How To's on Flash Remoting in CS5. Anyone have any good sites that could give me the low down on this? Not even sure if Flash Remoting is the prefered method for data transfer with CS5, or perhaps something better is out there? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi, first off, remoting is independent of the Creative Sweet marketing brand since it "resides" solely on the server end and it's main purpose is data (de)serialization. So regardless of CSx edition, as long as it is FP version 6+ you are good to go. Second, if yo plan to deploy remoting then this book is a must read for everyone - Also, remoting is built into ColdFusion (MX+) so if you plan to deploy it there then you are in business. Be more specific what you need remoting for, sometimes pure http calls will do.

    All of the work is being done on the back-end, hence the CS version is of no importance. I can speak only of ColdFusion regarding setting up a service, here is the info that would get you started: ro4.htm

    AMFPHP is a very popular remoting solution for Flash and PHP.  PHP is cheap to acquire, quite flexible, and very popular.


    If you need sockets, I've written a socket remoting solution for PHP and Flash:


    And there's also stuff like Red 5, CRTMPD, etc.

    I have a blog post here:

    it uses AS3 & ColdFusion. If you have any question about how to get it set up, let me know. I only do the ColdFusion side, never used AMFPHP.
