How about adding a feature to AIR that allow AIR apps on a
network to easily communicate with each other?
IT could be a simpple class that can be used to create
network-aware applications that requires no knowledge of socket,
tcp or ports. An AIR application could just simply use this class
to find other network-enabled applications on the network and
establish a connection automatically
// add event to listen to incoming calls
// ...do some work here...
// send a message to all apps in the MyAIRAppNetwork group
// send a message to application AIRApp.2 in the
As you can see this will make it so much easier to send data
between applications on the network. The AIR runtime would have
taken care of all the TCP/IP stuff so the developer can just focus
on sending the data.
