WorkShop n°18 : Debugging Flash application (AMF objects parsing)
Action Message Format (AMF) is a binary format used to serialize ActionScript objects. It is used primarily to exchange data between an Adobe Flash application and a remote service, usually over the internet.
TcpCatcher can parse and introspect AMF objects which is very useful when debugging a Flash application.
- Start TcpCatcher choosing HTTP mode.
- Set up your browser to use TcpCatcher as web proxy.
- Visit the web pages you want to debug. TcpCatcher will detect the application/x-amf Content-Type headers.

Double click on the row to open detailed view, and discover AMF packet parsed and loaded in a tree view. Just roll over or click on a node to view its value.
