FlashRC for .NET Framework and Flash
FlashRC is an alternative to the Macromedia Flash Remoting MX product. It is currently available for Microsoft's .NET Framework only, but they expect to have a Java version available soon.
FlashRC takes a different approach at the remoting problem by allowing a server side application to control a Flash movie remotely, with little or no ActionScript coding.
I just found this and will play with it over the weekend and see what it does…..
