Macromedia Flash Remoting for Flash 8 ActionScript 2.0

Macromedia has updated their Flash Remoting components.

Developing Rich Internet Applications using Macromedia Flash and Macromedia Flash Remoting MX requires the addition of the Flash Remoting Components. The Flash Remoting Components extend the Macromedia Flash authoring environment, adding the ActionScript APIs needed to invoke remote services using Flash Remoting MX. Authoring tool extensions—such as the NetConnection Debugger, which enables developers to watch and trace events across both the client and server—are also included in the Flash Remoting Components, in addition to powerful recordset handling and databinding capabilities for handling dynamic data from relational databases. Flash Remoting Components are available for Flash Professional 8, Flash Basic 8 and prior Flash versions.
