ActionScript 3.0 :: Launch And Connect To Java ServerApr 13, 2011
I was wondering if it was possible to launch a Java server when an SWF is started up. What I want is for a player to be able to "Host" a game from their browser, which will launch a Java server that will run on their computer and allow users to join, similar to what would be done with an out of browser game if a player chose to host a game themselves.I already have the Java server written and interfacing with AS3, it's the automation of the launch process that's got me stumped.Is this possible? If not, how is something similar to this usually done? My main hope is that I wont have to create dedicated servers that users will connect to. Would I have to launch the Java application through the web page?
