Buzzword Buster – AMFVO

AMFVO is short for Action Message Format (AMF) Value Object (VO).

AMF is a binary format used to serialize ActionScript objects, primarily used to exchange data between a Flash application and a remote service; a VO is also known as a Data Transfer Object (DTO), it is used to transfer data between application subsystems.

An AMFVO is simply a value object used to transfer ActionScript objects between a Flash application and a remote service.

The most widely used AMF encoding framework for .Net is FlourineFX.
