    Flash Player Server?

    Rob M Love Level 1

      This is just a thought and I like to know if this would be feasible.

       

      It seems everyone believes HTML 5 is the future and I do understand there are some cross compiling efforts being researched. I do not believe anyone wants to lose the investment they have in their current applications nor do they want to rewrite them. So I was wondering if it would be possible to serve the necessary portions of a flex app as HTML. Does this make sense? I guess my idea being that rather than loading an entire 4 MB SWF the server would send to the client only what was necessary for the current screen as HTML. I do not know if this would be possible but I do know I do not like JavaScript I would love to continue far into the future using action script.

       

      I find it interesting that the writing appears to be on the wall for the future of flash and all the bad talk of plug-ins that Google has their own little project that speaks of using a virtual machine which in my estimation is still additional software to get past HTML limitations and cross browser issues.
