Anyone for SWX?

! Warning: this post hasn't been updated in over three years and so may contain out of date information.

Being a Lewes-based developer who has recently started coding ActionScript, it was inevitable that I’d stumble across the name Aral Balkan. He is a Brighton-based Flash guru and a prolific blog writer. Definitely one to add to your RSS feed-reader in my view.

DatumThe reason for this post though is not so much to talk about Aral, but about something he is developing: SWX. He has often mentioned SWX on his blog, but until recently it hadn’t been obvious what SWX was, unless one went on a serious hunt though his website. He recently addressed this with a really good summary post. So now we all know: it’s yet another Flash/ server communications method. Despite being yet another communications method, it looks a promising one. All of the current methods (including AMFPHP) have big problems with them. SWX actually therefore looks a welcome addition to the list.
