Migrating from flash CS5.5 - Advice re: data integration

Apr 3, 2013 9:58 AM

Hi I am used to using flash and now I am moving to Flex. I have been told its for real developers and the best route for data integration.

I have an online learning management system where all the data goes into a mysql database. I want to create a dashboard that clients(schools) can log into and see information about their students progress.

I am about to go through tutorials on lynda.com but there seem to be so many differentt ways that I am confused.

Do I use Flex through flashbuilder + php or zendserver with php etc... I have read flex services, php services, web services, http services and I am confused.

 

I only want a simple dashboard.

 

Thanks for any clarification in advance. I am also a total newbie so will have to learn xmls from scratch. I am pretty good at OOP AS3.

    No I'm not annoyed at all.

     

    I use Flash more than Flex and have built quite complex software using both and with plenty of XML integration in Flash as well as Flex, mostly Flash, in fact.

    The infrastructure for large numbers of users depends on the server and network setup, not the client.

     

    Flex is great, but Flash is good too, as is HTML/Javascript, as is..

     

    It all depends on what you want to do.
