I will need to create a flash frontend for a standalone application, preferrably written in java or c++. The application is needed to access some custom hardware and flash is desired for visual appeal.
I've been searching the web about displaying flash in java or c++, but I couldn't find anything more than unanswered questions or projects that have apparently died (like swt.flash)
As a last resort, we could do it as a servlet on localhost, that would be accessed via http by flash running in a projector.. Or even worse, a php script accessing a java application being accessed by flash from a projector.. but that seems like a wery wide workaround.. An application hosting a swf, communicating both ways directly would be much better.
So.. does anyone have any idea if this is still possible and if so, how?
