As a brief respite from the training preparation, I spent yesterday fixing a slew of Hessian Flash/Flex bugs. Check out the changelog for more detailed information. This is the last snapshot that uses the old Hessian 2.0 draft spec, so you’ll need to upgrade your Java implementation for the next release/snapshot. As you might have noticed from reading the hessian-interest list, Scott’s been busy streamlining the Hessian protocol. While these changes have resulted in a number of efficiency improvements, they also break compatibility with older versions of Hessian. The next version of Hessian Flash/Flex will support this new version of the Hessian draft and only this version.
BTW, the new Hessian Flash/Flex supports the [RemoteClass] metadata, which does the same thing as the old hessianTypeName field, only better. Turns out that the Flash VM has support specifically to allow aliases for remoting. You can check out the feature request for more info.
