Open AMF ::: Java Flash Remoting

The OpenAMF project is a free open-source alternative to Macromedia's Java Flash Remoting. It is as capable of providing application services to Flash MX as Macromedia's proprietary solution. This project began as a Java port of AMF-PHP.

5. External Dependencies
- add the required jar's depending on your planned use
- for more information please read the next section


EXTERNAL DEPENDENCIES


The OpenAMF project makes use of several other open source projects. Depending
on your planned use of OpenAMF you will need to include different jar files in
your WEB-INF/lib directory.

If you are not sure which to add you can add them all, the only side effect will
be the increased size of your war file.

Logging


The OpenAMF project makes use of the Apache Jakarta commmons-logging project
for its logging.

This allow us to work with any of the popular logging systems such as log4j or
java.util.logging in J2SE 1.4

Logging config for JBoss


To view debug log messages while using JBoss you will need to modify
the {JBOSS_HOME}/server/default/conf/log4j.xml file
1. First look for this:









2. Change the Threshold to DEBUG
3. Then further down in the file add this








Logging config for Tomcat


To view debug messages while using Tomcat you will need to
set the CATALINA_OPTS environment variable to
"-Dorg.apache.commons.logging.Log=org.apache.commons.logging.impl.SimpleLog -Dorg.apache.commons.logging.simplelog.defaultlog=debug"

After setting the environment variable you will need to restart Tomcat

All the debug message will be sent to the {TOMCAT_HOME}/logs/catalinia.out file
