    Server Side Flex Code?

    LeoRenoWorks
      My company currently has a back end image rendering engine built in Java. The rendering engine serves up images on request to a Flex User Interface through web services. What we have discovered through benchmarking is that Flex (or the Flash Runtime) is able to complete simple renders even faster than Java.

      So I wondered... can we tap into some of these Flex image manipulation libraries on the server side?

      We would love to develop the entire rendering engine in Flex. Unfortunately there are some downsides to this such as increased bandwidth usage since the large raw images used to create the final rendered image would all need to be transfered over the internet to the client.

      The ideal solution would be to develop the rendering engine in Flex but have the Flex code run on the server.

      Is this possible? Can anyone comment?

      Thanks,
