In the previous tutorial File Sharing over P2P in Flash Player 10.1 with Object Replication we went through the Object Replication basics. And you can see that the Receiver is requesting packets one by one. That’s not suitable for the real world app, but it’s good for testing on a LAN to see the progress. [...]
Object Replication is the most low-level P2P access available in Flash Player 10.1 (next to Multicast, Posting and Directed Routing) It basically enables you to send chunks of between peers. Object Replication is the only one, that guarantees that all data will be transferred to all receiving peers.
I’ve built this simple file sharing [...]
This videotutorial is a follow-up of my tutorial Simple chat with P2P NetGroup in FP 10.1.
Peer-to-peer chat with NetGroup in Flash Player 10.1 (ADC video link)
Directed Routing enables you to send data to a specific client in the peer-to-peer group (NetGroup). It requires stable and correct topology to work well – still it’s very useful.
There has been already something written about directed routing. But I’d like to share with you much more.
First, let me explain you which methods does what. [...]
This idea has been in my head for quite some time. I actually came up with it when I was building the demo for my MAX keynote appearance last October. I just never found the time to actually build it but I started on it this week.
The idea is simple. You open up a browser, [...]
Flex developers interested in new opportunities may want to look at the developer preview of Adobe Flash Builder for Force.com.
