OiReilly & Associates has published a new book examining Flash remoting titled, "Flash Remoting: The Definitive Guide". Written by Todd Muck, the book desconstructs both Web Services and Rich Internet Applications, and the roles that Flash plays within the two. According to OiReilly & Associates:
Todayis hottest topics in Web development are Web services and Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)...and Flash Remoting is pivotal to both.
Tom Muckis "Flash Remoting: The Definitive Guide" equips readers to take advantage of this breakthrough, server-side technology to integrate rich Macromedia Flash content with their existing applications in order to create RIAs that connect to remote databases and services.
The end result is fast and flexible client/server applications that resemble highly functional desktop applications with their complex interactivity and ability to deliver nearly instant--and seemingly constant--gratification to end users.
