Air Http is a flex library that enables developers to add an HTTP Deamon inside an AIR application. This simple AIR webserver makes it easy to extend access to functions and status within an application. This is especially useful if you've got to communicate from a webpage (over localhost) without the use of FLASH communication. At the time this was written, for example, Chrome's sandbox would prevent communication with other FLASH components that were in other processes. The server, com.airhttp.HttpServer, is simple to incorporate and provides the ability to server files found under a specified directory within your applicationStorageDirectory, or extend with ActionControllers that implement actions in code you supply.
