Here is a peace of the Flash documentation say (from http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/action_scripts/actionscript_dictionary/actionscript_dictionary860.html)

The protocol is as follows:
- XML messages are sent over a full-duplex TCP/IP stream socket connection.
- Each XML message is a complete XML document, terminated by a zero byte.
- An unlimited number of XML messages can be sent and received over a single XMLSocket connection.

Perhaps it is not so hard to implements that protocol in XmlBlaster.
It looks like XmlBlaster's Socket plugin, with xml message against binary message.

It shouldn't be too hard to use the flash XMLSocket.

In xmlBlaster (current svn) we have two ways to serialize messages and to unpack them
again, one is the XML markup of the xmlBlaster XmlScriptParser framework and the other
is the more binary SOCKET (XbfParser) formatting, see



We use both pluggable in our 'email' protocol layer, the XbfParser for the SOCKET protocol,
so they are well tested.

Thanks Marcel for those good news ;o)

Do you think it could be nice/possible to add an option to the Socket protocol for switching the serializer/unserializer between binary/xml ? Or may we do another protocol plugin ?

This could be possible,but the situation is as follows:

1. On client side you use XMLSocket.

2. The work to be done is on server side:
"To use the XMLSocket object, the server computer must run a daemon that understands the protocol used by the XMLSocket object. The protocol is as follows: ..."

So you need to write a xmlBlaster protocol plugin on server side which understands the
thingies send by XMLSocket and sends back bytes&bits as XMLSocket expects it.



regards Marcel

Is that new protocol plugin could be use with other technology like Ajax ?
Do you think this new protocol should be pertinent for XmlBlaster's futur ?
Do you think that it could be hard to implement it ?
Has some of you can do it in one or two days ? If not, I've to do it, but I'm not a Java agile programmer, so I will be very slow ...

thanks for discusses,
