    My company is starting on a new project using the client/server model. Because the client is multimedia rich, we are considering flash as the development environment. However, before we make a definite decision, I would like to get some basic information about the more esoteric capabilities of flash.

    1) Is there a way for flash to talk to a server through TCP, sending and receiving codes? Would this involve using another language with flash?

    2) Is flash capable of doing streaming audio?

    Regards,

    Funny you should bring that up. I just created a VB application based on the same model. Flash will provide the audio and for the TCP/IP socks I used VB's Winsock Control. The flash ocx works pretty well so long as you stay above 256 colors

    I dont know what experience you have with flash but it does have a key function called FScommand that allows you to export simple strings that can fire the following event in VB.

    Private Sub ShockwaveFlash1_FSCommand(ByVal command As String, ByVal args As String)

    From here Select Case works pretty well.

    end sub

    As far as the audio is concerned, I dont know if flash can provide audio sent to it after it has been compiled.

    A flash GUI for your C or VB projects is very very nice. The ocx is robust enough for some direct interaction between the swf file and it's container.
