There is much to learn in order to harness the true power of the Flash Communication Server MX. Macromedia's new server integrates support for streaming media, multi-way video, audio and text messaging, and real-time collaboration into a single solution. Flash Communication Server MX is an introduction to the technology, as well a guide to implementation of successful applications. Part I provides 10 quick steps to get readers familiar with the server and how it works. Part II explores the important issues affecting appropriate integration of the Communication Server. Key concepts include understanding digital communication solutions, understanding objects, using server side ActionScripting, Flash Remoting, and security issues. A third section provides tutorials on how to create some popular applications for the server. Finally, a series of appendices supply reference material for Flash Communication Server MX users. The media files required for the tutorials will be available on a web site constructed for the book.

Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I *was* excited to get this book - it is one of the first books out on the subject. After using Flash for years, and using MX almost exclusively since its release, I was anticipating jumping into Flash Communication Server once a book came out on the subject. I was looking forward to see something "real world" beyond the documentation. But surprise, surprise. This book gives you very little more than what is already free when you get the software. And get this - the documentation has fewer errors than this book has! Now that's bad.
This book is apparently written by one of the foremost members of the Flash community (or so he calls himself in the book). So I was looking forward to some expert advice on the subject - but honstly, I couldn't find it anywhere in this title. This book is so full of errors -- there is sometimes even several errors on the very same page! Some irritating things like semi-colons after include statements. Code that causes whole examples not to work properly. Nothing to be found in the errata area to clear things up. Cannot seem to get a reply from the author to find out. And more "poor form" all around to shake a stick at.
I'd like to see something that goes beyond what's free, teaches you some (good) code, uses good form, and gives you some real world "oomph" and relevant. This book does none of the above, and I do not recommend it at all. Not only that, but it is a small book, and in around the most expensive out there.

Typos and Errors and Ommissions, oh my! 29. Juli 2003
Von The One That Got Away - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Because this book, for the time being anyway, was essentailly my only option, I bought it. If you have any programming experience what so ever - especially any experience programming ActionScript, you will find this book tedious, repetative and slow moving. It tends to repeat itself every couple of pages and provide no truly useful figures or images, but is chock full of erroneous code and typos. I'm looking forward to replacing this book as soon a a new one on the topic can be found, and I would suggest it ONLY if you truly need some reference material on FlashComm now.

Macromedia Flash Communication Server MX 25. Mai 2003
Von "total_mundo" - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Over the past three years I have been working toward a Master degree in Software engineering. I have read many books introducing me to new languages and software. I really think the authors or publishers of this book should offer people who purchased this book a refund or a voucher for a free copy of a revised edition. This book is full of errors. You will spend most of your time looking at the book's website trying to review their corrections in effort to figure out how to complete the examples in the book.

yes, it's the only option, and nope, Definitely No Star ! 24. März 2003

I totally agree with other people's comment about the typos, errors, rush and skip-offs in the book. these are all true.
btw, if you have to buy this book (why torture yourself ?) , at least wait until all the demo files (especially chatper 16) appear on the website, and let the erratas grow a bit longer, so you can skip all the head aches we had all been through. thanks kevin, nice job. you grow me a lot, really.
oh yeah, also all the never-returned emails. all possible buyers can try this first, see if you ever get *any* reply.

Does an author have an ethical obligation to you? 11. Februar 2003
Von Ethan Chodos - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Initially I was excited to read this book. It is the first to appear on this new topic. The author has done a good job of presenting the information in a well organized and accessible format. Unfortunately, the text and code samples in every chapter are so riddled with errors that they are unusable in their printed form. The reader must approach every exercise with suspicion. Don't worry if you can't reproduce the expected results at first. It is not your fault. The question is: did you buy this book to practice your code editing skills or to learn from a trusted expert? If it is the latter, then this book is not for you. In my opinion, when an author writes a technical book he enters into an unspoken agreement with you, his readers, to write the best and most accurate book he can in exchange for a great deal of your time and money. I accept that some mistakes are inevitable in a highly technical book like this. But when the author knows about the book's many flaws, and I know he does, he has an ethical obligation to post corrections on his web site as soon as he becomes aware of them, regardless of the embarrassment it may cause him. Not to do so makes him the moral equivalent of a snake oil salesman and a coward. Too bad that a lack of integrity should destroy an otherwise worthy effort.
