It is my understanding from reading the documentation (and please understand that I am very new to Flex also and only a novice user at best) that you may be able to accomplish what you need to with the Flex Data Services 2 running under J2EE - i.e. this service can "push" data to the clients (excerpt from the docs shown below). I can't tell you much more than that except to urge you to read the documentation for the Flex Data Services 2 here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flex/dataservices/
Flex Data Services offers data-push capability, enabling data to automatically be pushed to the client application without polling. This highly scalable capability can push data to thousands of concurrent users, providing up-to-the-second views of critical data, such as stock trader applications, live resource monitoring, shop floor automation, and more.
Thanks for your reply.
Yes i read that as well, which is why i posted here. I tried to look at some of the examples and read the documentation but it's scattered all over the place and i couldn't find any sample applications that proved this point. In fact, the J2EE related samples i did find all used a polling mechanism rather than a push model.
Does anyone else know specifically about the Flex Data Services and how they are able to push to clients? Can Flex Data Services be called from the outside, e.g. can you PUSH to the flex data service so that it can in turn push to clients?
( -> is a push)
.NET Application Server -> Flex (Data Services?) -> Clients?
