It was nice that blazeds provided java amf client. But its function is restricted to remote function call. When utilizing the messaging feature(double side transmission) there is no java support.
A java testing client that accepts message is what I am seeking. As long as the message gets 'pushed' from messaging service to the java client, I'll be satisfied. Whatever channel, polling or streaming should be fine.
Have you looked at the Java Messaging Service. I don't know anything about JMS or polling channel types , but it's worth a look. Let me know what you find.
Yes, that could be possible workarounds. Here is what I find as drawback(needs verification):
JMS seems to be opening ports, which asks for more than blazeds. Don't know if shared web hosting agrees.
Blazeds wraps around JMS. If I use jms java client for testing, I bypass flex messaging layer.
