Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Why we use stuff like Flash and Java: persistent connections

Looks like Laszlo lets you use 'em, too (uh, here's the actual tutorial. Looks like it does a persistent connection to the presentation server, which then can do HTTP requests out. I wonder if we can just open a socket right from the Laszlo app. Or doesn't Flash let you do that?

Hmm, Flash definitely does sockets, although might force you to use a streaming XML protocol.

So, can you access this from Laszlo?
