Since AS3 offers raw sockets and enables byte-arrays, there is no reason why we couldn’t build the following:
- MySQL Connector
- Oracle Connector
- SVN Connector
For example, if someone wanted to make a UML modeling program online, it would be possible to plug it directly on an SVN serveur (or CVS .. or anything else you fancy), and do reverse engineering on the classes, showing you a complete UML view of your code! Then you could do live re-factoring visually, like move functions around, create new objects, and have the program update all your code for you. Now that’s what I call something usefull!
Anybody’s up for it?
