Subject Re: AMFPHP support for FlexJS
Date Thu, 27 Oct 2016 09:22:18 GMT
Hi Fréderic,

thanks for joining :)

AMF is currently not supported, but it was discussed several times in the
Many of us agree that AMF is currently the best communication protocol out
there (I even don't understand the JSON success taking into account AMF is
open source specification and was implemented in almost every language out
there, but hey! world turned from Flash to HTML so I expect anything ;P).

In JS there's some basic protocol ports out there, but we need an high
level library that brings to FlexJS what old Flex SDK has with rpc.swc. We
basically need the *RemoteObject* implementation that eases the use of AMF
in JS as you posted.

As you, many of us would need this communication layer to avoid change any
server side code if we want support a FlexJS front end layer to our

Nobody is currently working on this, But Chris Dutz talked about contribute
to this. Chris is contributing with building tooling, maven, site, and
maybe you could talk with him in order to start looking at how to bring AMF
to FlexJS. Your help would be so much appreciated.

Without doubt for me is one of the key pieces that we need.
