AMF::Perl - Flash Remoting in Perl Translated from PHP Remoting v. 0.5b from the -PHP project.
Main gateway class. This is always the file you call from flash remoting-enabled server scripts.
This code should be present in your AMF::Perl gateway script, the one called by the Flash client.
To enable the client to call method bar() under service Foo, make sure MyCLass has a method called bar() and register an instance of your class.
my $object = new MyClass(); my $gateway = AMF::Perl->new; $gateway->registerService("Foo",$object); $gateway->service();
Or, if you have many services to register, create a package corresponding to each service and put them into a separate directory. Then register this directory name.
In the example below directory "services" may contain Foo.pm, Bar.pm etc. Therefore, services Foo and Bar are available. However, these packages must have a function called methodTable returning the names and descriptions of all possible methods to invoke. See the documentation and examples for details.
my $gateway = AMF::Perl->new; $gateway->setBaseClassPath('./services'); $gateway->service();
Macromedia Flash Remoting server-side support.
This file accepts the data and deserializes it using the InputStream and Deserializer classes. Then the gateway builds the executive class which then loads the targeted class file and executes the targeted method via flash remoting. After the target uri executes the the gateway determines the data type of the data and serializes and returns the data back to the client.
None by default.

ORIGINAL PHP Remoting CONTRIBUTORS Musicman - original design Justin - gateway architecture, class structure, datatype io additions John Cowen - datatype io additions, class structure Klaasjan Tukker - modifications, check routines, and register-framework
- Made printing output a separate function, requested by Scott Penrose.
- Wrote exportable amf_throw() for exception handling.
- Patch from Kostas Chatzikokolakis handling encoding.
- Changed non-mod_perl behavior for reading POST data from using <> to using read() to work around a bug in IIS
- Joined code for mod_perl 1 and 2. Separated the output code for the mod_perl and non-mod_perl cases.
- Added "binmode STDOUT" before printing headers to prevent conversion of 0a to 0d0a on Windows.
- Added modperl 1 support and (so far commented out) hypothetical modperl 2 support.
- Synching with AMF-PHP:
Added functions debugDir() and log() (debug() in PHP), added reading headers to service(). Added fromFile() to enable parsing traffic dumps.
