While going through FLEX Tutorials , i read that we can implement Push in Flex Applications
USING Blaze ds , or any other servers .
can anybody please let me know what is meant by the term Push ??
Thanks in advance .
It means pushing data from the server to a Flex client.
For example what happens in a chat application. One person sends a message to the server, and it is pushed to all the other clients connected to that chat room.
A word of warning when it comes to "push" and Adobe products. LCDS does push properly, BlazeDS doesn't. It claims it does, but it's really just polling.
It's controversial (depending on definitions) whether Blaze does a "real" push. I'd say it and Granite Data Services do a good enough job (it's quite fast when compared to other techniques). So in the end, it usually doesn't matter so much.
