    With Flash Comms, I see from this article :

    "For example, if the application is looking for a price alert, it makes more sense for the Flash Communication Server to do the price polling via Flash Communication Server Remoting with the application server. If the price target is reached, the Flash Communication Server can notify the Flash client via RTMP."

    For me, polling sucks.. I don't want to use it..

    In the above example, I would rather when the price target is reached, then the server push the data to flash communication server, which would then directly interact with a shared object stored, and the user would be notified.

    Is this at all possible with Flash Comms, or is this a major achilles heel ?

    Thanks for the link, there is a "work-around" that someone suggests, and it seems a pretty good idea... It merits some investigation
