PHPObject is an Open Source alternative to Flash Remoting for PHP developers. With PHPObject, it is possible to call a method of a PHP class/library on a web server as if the class/library was defined in Flash itself. It takes care of your client-server connections and makes passing of variables (properties) between Flash MX and PHP, and thereby providing a way to connect rich media clients with data and business logic residing on the server.

The library, together with a WebServicesConnectivityAddOn, also allows developers to easily consume Web services from within Flash MX.


  • Handles most data types - arrays, objects, strings, numbers, etc. with multibyte character support
  • When a PHPObject is created in Flash MX, it automatically gets its default properties from the remote object
  • Validate whether method exists on the remote object before connection
  • Allows only one server connection per object at a time to preserve data integrity (ie remote methods of the same object cannot be called simultaneously)
  • More than one remote method can be invoked sequentially per connection (rather than having to make a new connection for each method called)
  • Makes consuming SOAP-based web services easy
  • Protect your gateway from unauthorized use with a key
  • Allows parameters to be passed to the remote object's constructor
  • Event handlers (responders) such as onAbort, onInit, onError, and onResult
  • Responders can be defined for individual methods, eg. myFoo.doMethod_onResult = function(result){}
  • Uses PHP's native serialize() and unserialize() functions for performance
