I would like to develop a backend application using Air. The back end application is a server that allows a client application to connect over the Internet and perform some task. (The client application may or may not be Flex).
Does anyone know if Air has been updated to Listen to connections on some arbitrary socket port number? I tried to do this with SDK 3.0 and there was no way to have external applications connect to listening sockets.
Is it available possibly in the Air 4.0?
I like Flex and would prefer if I can write the back end with the same language.
