AMF is a proprietary protocol developed by Macromedia for binary

data representation, based loosely on SOAP. AMF is used with

ByteArrays, The IExternalizable Interface, NetConnections,

NetStreams, and LocalConnections.


In plain english, AMF is a way of representing data in a binary

format in preperation for transfer from an application residing on

the client to an interpreter residing on the server. AMF has been

reverse engineered by the open source community, allowing for amf

interpreters such as amfphp (php), weborn (.net among others), and

blaze DS (java).
