Does Salesforce supports AMF ?

Hi All,

 

Is there any way we can get SFDC to offer AMF? Does Salesforce supports making AMF calls ?

 

Thanks

If possible, and it would probably highly depend on the cross domain policy of the AMF server at the very least, you might look at Flex as a bridge.  Otherwise you'd probably need to implement some kind of middleware in something like Python or PHP to communicate with both systems.  You might already be aware, but the Wiki page for AMF has a great list of libraries:

But at the moment, no plans for AMF support in Apex that I'm aware of.

No plans that I'm aware of - are you using Flash/Flex embedded in Visualforce or the like?

I need to integrate Salesforce with an external server. API of this external server only supports AMF calls.
