I've nearly completed porting of Flash remoting to Python, "PyAMF", a la
AMFPHP for PHP, FLAP for Perl, OpenAMF and FlashORB(?) for Java. For those
that don't know, Flash remoting allows you to send structured data (objects,
etc) from the server to the Flash client, using a compact binary protocol,
without having to manually fuss with serialization and data-type conversions
(big hassle). It generally accomplishes the same thing as SOAP (etc), but
requiring a fraction of the bandwidth and using less CPU cycles on the
client and server.
I'd like to be able to support the implementation of it as a Webware plugin
or module (and potentially other environments someday). I'm a newbie though
(just installing now), so I'd appreciate any direction/pointers you can give me.
What I need to do is to be able to load this thing up, currently implemented as a
series of classes in single module. Then, most likely using servlets, being
able to have complete control of the output, starting with custom HTTP
headers followed by binary data.
I'm all about performance, so ideally this module would be loaded once with the
server and remain in memory for subsequent requests. This is the main appeal
over using the PHP version, which has to be loaded for each request. Is there
anything special I need to do to facilitate this or does Webware take care of
this for me?
...I'd also like to get this working with db-pool and userkit(is anyone
working on userkit)?
Back to combing through the docs and wiki...
