How do I know the best data channel to select in a given situation? AMF, RTMP, HTTP, etc... I'd like to know the best channels for database communication or remoting but I can't find any documentation on selecting channels.
It depends on your constraints - for example if you are behind a firewall and you cannot a port for RTMP you are forced to used other channels. A good description of pro/cons can be found here: http://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/8.2/programLC/programmer/lcds/help.html?content=lccon fig_2.html#1073571
