could you help me to understand possibilities of data exchange between server (java) and Flex client. I know there is REST HttpService which allows Flex client to send requests and get responses. But imagine a chat (for example, like google chat). The chart client is on Flex. How can the chart client get data without a request, but right immediately after a message from another person is sent? How is this technology called?
It is Data Push. You can do sockets, or look at BlazeDS, or LCDS. I think
persistent connections would go as a general term.
I do sockets, works charming.
Could you prompt me in more details, how to use sockets - which Flex and java classes to use? thanks
