I am new to Flex and am looking at developing some neat web
based instrumentation apps.
My apps will need to access serial ports, local files and be
able to connect to servers other than the one from which the app
originated. I am looking into doing all this from a flex app
launched from the internet (not Adobe AIR).
Is it possible to accomplish this in some way, such as
digital signatures, configuration files etc???
I have previously developed such apps using signed java
applets, and am wondering is something similar exists for flex.
