Thanks for your input & time "dtf flex4" :-)
The thing is, as far as I understand Merapi, it will require a seperate java app to be run on the machine, aside from my AIR app.
This also means that I need a JVM to be installed & maintained on that machine...
Two things that aren't that big of a problem, but nonetheless another hurdle that I need to tackle when defending FLEX AIR as development tool towards the 'powers that be' :-)
So is there any way to use a dll built into AIR/ FLEX/ActionScript ?
Why this file must be a .dll? Maybe some can rewrite this only to .exe file or write bridge in C/C++ and then just call this(new NativeProcess()) mini application through your Flex AIR Application.
Hey again :-)
In any case, thanks for your time and effort :-)
The thing is, the dll file exists already and has already been approved for use on this project. There is no way for me to convince the managers to have this file modified or re-written.
So the question remains if calling a .dll directly from within AIR is possible.
