No I beg to differ. I am sure there can be a solution like GraniteDS which
is very simple and elegant. Sice Red5 is also supposedly implemented using
Spring it should be straight forward. Its that I am scrtching my head with
my understanding of red5. The documentation is very poor.
During Thanksgiving, I reached out to some Red5 experts/consultants and the
wanted charge muliplt hundreds of dollars per hr for consulting. (Sigh!).
Anyway from the feature list, it looks like a great product, I just wish it
is more open and transparent like other open source products like BlazeDS
and GraniteDs and the numerous Apache products.
Let us see how we can go forward.
