Currently I have a working java applet that works great, but
I am looking to use Flash as a front-end. The reason for choosing
an applet is that I want all of the computation to be performed on
the client-side. This project is for educational (Grades 7-12)
purposes and I need something a bit more interesting than the blah
look of java applets so I would like to use Flash.
I have read some information about using java with flash, but
the computation needs to slide over to the server-side which is not
what I want to do. So, basically I am looking for a means of using
my current java classes to perform the computation on the
client-side just like an applet but to have a more visually
appealing GUI for the front-end. Is this possible? Please let me
know either way. Thanks.
Yes it would be possible. Both Flash and JAVA (applets) can
would call the applet, process the request and then call back to
I know it can be done as in the past (long time ago) I had
written JAVA to communicate with the browser and have also written
Flash to communicate with the browser. However, at this time if you
were to ask me for the actual script to do so, I would not be able
to help. But like I said it is possible.
