so i have a stream of data coming in from another source.
is it possible to connect to a network using flash? not just streaming video or audio, but real data? i'm not talking about accessing a static text file. i'm talking about run-time streaming of data from network.

is this possible?

FlashComm Server MX enables two way communications between server and client via SharedObject... (that means data)

would Flash Remoting MX solve this problem?

yep, it can, but you are not going to have data streaming, because with flash remoting you can only enable remote procedures calling, and manage asynchronous responses (one way communication)

well i don't really need two-way communications. i don't need to send the server anything. i just need one-way data streaming.

i'll elaborate my project. there will be a java program hooked up to a camera that takes a picture and sends data to flash. but my flash doesn't need to send back anything.

and the data will be coming from a server.

in this case, will flash remoting do the job?

not exactly, because  with flash remoting the flash application cannot be notified of a data change in the java program. In this case, you should use an xmlsocket  communication. Read something about unity: http://www.moock.org/unity/
