Flash Media Server Server-side APIs

Server-Side ActionScript is Adobe’s name for JavaScript 1.5. Flash Media Interactive Server has an embedded Java-Script engine that compiles and executes server-side scripts. This Server-Side ActionScript Language Reference documents the Flash Media Interactive Server host environment classes and functions. You can also use core Java-Script classes, functions, statements, and operators. For more information, see the Core JavaScript 1.5 Reference on http://developer.mozilla.org/En.

Server-Side ActionScript is similar, but not identical, to ActionScript 1.0. Both languages are based on ECMAScript (ECMA-262) edition 3 language specification. Server-Side ActionScript runs in the Mozilla SpiderMonkey engine embedded in Flash Media Interactive Server. ActionScript 1.0 runs in AVM1 (ActionScript Virtual Machine 1) in Adobe® Flash® Player. SpiderMonkey implemented the ECMAScript specification exactly and Flash Player AVM1 did not. The biggest difference between Server-Side ActionScript and ActionScript 1.0 is that Server-Side ActionScript is case-sensitive.
