I was wondering, is there any way to call native code from Flex?
Currently, we're writing browser plugins in order to call native code from a Flex application. However, it would be nice to be able to call native code directly from Flex, so that we could write it only per-platform, as opposed to currently per-platform-per-browser.
In general, the sandbox does not allow you to access native code from Flex.
I believe you can use Merapi, but perhaps only for AIR:
You might be able to code around the Flex sandbox, but it would be a ton of work.
If this post answers your question or helps, please mark it as such.
Air 2.0 supports calling native code using NativeProcess
but requires a native installation using ADT
Once your AIR program is installed it can be launched from Flash
