SOAP vs Flash Remoting Benchmark

I wrote a Flash form validator using web serivces pointing to Cold Fusion. It turned out that about 30% of the web serive requests were failing. I decided to revert to flash remoting and found that firing a burst of requests (one for each form field) worked fine.

My attention was drawn to this article SOAP vs Flash Remoting Benchmark which went a long way to explain what I experienced. From this experience it seems to me that if you are using Flash and are connecting to Cold Fusion cfcs, you are better off using flash remoting than web service connectors.
