[JDEV] Jabber and Flash

Nice to see more .NET developers around.  :)

I'd look into Flash Remoting.  I built a proof of concept app with it a
few months ago and it looked very promising (assuming you can put up
with their scripting language).  It allows you to make calls to
webservices and stateless .NET assemblies, Java, and a number of other
things.  You could pretty easily write, or use an existing, "proxy" type
layer that would return simple XML to Flash and would not make the Flash
client do all the XMPP/Jabber protocol stuff.  There are a couple of
SOAP/WebService abstraction products/projects out there now.
