I am very new to Flex or any Flash development but I am
creating and designing a website where I will need to have real
time chat and other server push capabilities. So I would like to
use flex or flashplayer to do that. My concern is what happens when
user leaves the website or refreshes the page? Is the connection to
the server lost and the user has to reconnect to the socket again?
I am not sure if the connection is maintained through the
flashplayer browser plugin or is it just through the swf file that
is loaded with the page?
