Flash / ActionScript client for Stomp

UPDATE: an update to the STOMP AS3 client that works with latest versions of ActionScript 3 and Flex is now available.  The new client implements most (if not all) of the STOMP protocol.  You can download the binary and the source here.  A couple tutorials on how to use this client with ActiveMQ (and ActiveMessaging) are availabe here.


This page describes the Flash client for Stomp.

To get the source, refer to "Developer SVN access" and check out the source anonymously.

 This client package needs ActionScript 3. From a users perspective that means Flash Player 9.x (which most of us have these days), from a developers perspective that means:

  • Flash 9 Developer Alpha (the full release due April 2007) (Commercial)
  • Flex 2 Builder (Commercial)
  • Flex 2 SDK (Free here)

 There is nothing clever going on with this client - since the inclusion of Socket classes inside AS (and later, the XMLSocket which this package uses), Server to Client push with Flash has been easy.

  1. Thank you for this information. Could you be more specific as to where to get the source ? I am new around here and can't find where "Developer SVN Access" is. Thanks.
