External Interface and Java

I’ve been starting to explore flash little more lately, and been wondering about how extensive the External Interface functionality goes. I know it can interact with C#, javascript, and php I believe. What I’m wondering, is how/if it can interact with a regular java container.

I’ve started messing with a couple tools that can create/play a .swf, but at this point I’m not sure if it can interact with the External Interface command.

My main goal with this exploration project is to be able to have a flash-based interaction with (hopefully) java as the back-end for file read/write control. If anyone has any experience and/or suggestions, I would gladly take any advice or help I can get :slight_smile:

edit: This may belong in the newer programming forum, not sure. Put it here since it relies on specific AS functionality with other languages.
