tomcatpolicyprotocol is a jakarta tomcat protocol handler that serves a Flash socket policy file which is needed when you want to establish a socket connection with Flash to your tomcat server. When you use the http/https library for AS3 (http://github.com/gabriel/as3httpclient/tree/master) that uses sockets to use real REST services this little tomcat extension helps you to fullfill the security requirements of the new Flash players (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/socket_policy_files.html) Configruation: You need the latest version of Tomcat (right now version 6) Just copy the flashsocketpolicy-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar, created by the maven build, to the tomcat lib folder. Add the following connector to the list of connectors in the server.xml: <Connector protocol="flash.SocketPolicyProtocolHandler"/> This connector now serves a default socket policy file on port 843. Default policy file: <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd"> <cross-domain-policy> <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only"/> <allow-access-from domain="localhost" to-ports="80" /> </cross-domain-policy> If you want a different port you can change it like this: <Connector port="8111" protocol="flash.SocketPolicyProtocolHandler"/> You can also change the default policy file by specifying the absolute path to it: <Connector port="8111" policyFile="/policy.xml" protocol="flash.SocketPolicyProtocolHandler"/>
