I think it would be really cool to be able to extend the
backend support of AIR with Java plug-ins that (or C++ plug-ins)
that the AIR's framework could access. Is there any provision for
this in the AIR framework.
One idea I had is related to my other post of today, which
would be some kind of plug-in to query the OS about file types and
launch the appropriate program, when the user double-clicks on a
file in a window displaying the files in a directory.
Artemis does look kind of interesting. It worries me though
that there doesn't seem to have been any activity on their website
since last April. Is the project abandoned. Did they have to go
back to their real jobs?
