Released: Macromedia Flash Remoting for Flash MX 2004 ActionScript 2.0

Published by at 21:30 under Wayback Archive

What shall I say, better late than never 😉 Updating the Remoting ActionScript library to the Flash Remoting AS 2.0 classes has been a very lengthy process for Macromedia. So I think everyone in and outside Macromedia is relieved that the stuff has finally been released.

By the way, there’s also a Remoting Connector Component included and some very advanced Remoting Examples.

The engineering team has done a great job in working with the Remoting Advisory Board, which on it’s turn did a great job of pushing the Macromedia team to it’s limits. One of the great examples is that the Advisory Board pushed Macromedia to spend more time on the Remoting documentation, which they did. The entire download is over 16 mb (whilst the old one was less than 6 mb)!

In my opinion this is a great release, go check it out!

I’m wondering whether now is the time to start brainstorming about features for a next version of the server component?

    I didn’t came to testing the new API yet but there seem to be some problems with the html layout in the help files. Everything is readable but e.g. line breaks or tables with overviews etc are not properly displayed.

    I was having the same trouble with the help files in OS X. My solution was to use Acrobat to read the actual HTML files and create a PDF that is readable.

    Here is the link to the well formatted PDF version:


    It’s bad enough not to get printed documentation. It’s even worse when the electronic version is poorly formatted.
