Building a Simple Chat App With Adobe Flash Collaboration Services (Via InsideRIA)
"In this post, we will focus on getting started with Adobe Flash Collaboration Services (formerly Cocomo). If you've heard of this, but aren't really sure what it is, AFCS is a hosted service provided by Adobe which enables real-time collaboration within your own Flex applications.
A better description from the AFCS site on Adobe Labs:
Adobe Flash Collaboration Service is a Platform as a Service that allows Flex developers to easily add real-time social capabilities into their RIA (rich Internet applications). Comprised of both Flex-based client components and a hosted services infrastructure, Adobe Flash Collaboration Service allows you to build real-time, multi-user applications with Flex in less time than ever before. And because Acrobat.com hosts the service, issues like deployment, maintenance, and scalability are taken care of for you.
This can be used for live chats, video chats, whiteboarding, and real-time collaboration, and is very easy to get started. Below, you'll find a quick example that I was able to put together this evening."
