Using the Message Service

The Message Service expands the core messaging framework to add support for publish-subscribe messaging among multiple Flex clients as well as message push from the server to clients. A Flex application uses the client-side messaging API to send messages to, and receive messages from, a destination defined by the server. Messages are sent over a channel and processed by a server endpoint, both of which are protocol-specific.

The Message Service also supports bridging to JMS topics and queues on an embedded or external JMS server by using the JMSAdapter. For more information, see Connecting to the Java Message Service (JMS).
