My Flex app is attempting to receive a URL string from a
remote data source; I'm using the RPC component HTTPService to
receive the data. The only thing unusual about this is that the
remote service is programmed to send the data in a URL string to my
application upon client-side program execution, that is, prior to
or independent of the HTTPService sending the request. I'm unable
to change our vendor software's behavior on the server-side.
Can the HTTPService still serve my purpose even though the
response is before the request?
How exactly is the data being sent by the remote data source?
I wonder if it might be possible to open a socket or something
either in the preloader, or either do something with the
preinitialize or initialize system events.
