I've been asked to build a flash/AS3 app which displays JSON formatted data from a web socket
I've been told the HTML5 version (that i don't have access to) does the following:
uses a web socket and JSON formatted messages obtained by opening a socket back to the server and setting up a handler for receiving dynamics messages
in the HTML5 version the following code happens:
// Make a socket connection and wait to receive data
webSocket = io.connect(webSocketHost + ":" + webSocketPort);
// Subscribe to data
This is outside of my comfort zone, but there's no-one else to action this.
I've read up on socket connections and IO, Blaze etc etc but everything seems to utilise a huge amount of code but the HTML5 version only has the 3 lines above.
Could someone point me towards an example or talk me through the AS3 (preferably not Flex) equivalent please?
thanks for anything, Rich
