You would use the same techniques with Flex.

I was reading some tutorials and I got this 2 answers: You have to use the Web Service technique, OR you build your own connection to MS SQL Server: http://www.cflex.net/showfiledetails.cfm?ChannelID=1&Object=File&objectID=571
Can someone check it and tell me if it is a solution?
I already found my answer, but now I really needo to ask you people something else:
To connecto to MS SQL server i need to create a new instance of a server connection, using a JDBC, BUT to configure it I need JRun Management Console. I downloaded FDS from the Adobe site, but I can't find the console :s
COULD ANYONE HELP ME?
Already instaled JRun 4 to use the JMC but now I´m looking forward to create a MXML that fetches de data from the sql server... any help?
NOBODY'S REALLY HELPING ME :(
Already resolved my problem... thanks, I think... (that's only in case you were looking forward to help me, and I doubt it...)
Please Help me and Give me a solution. I am a bignner like you and I need your help please.
Give me an example of how I can connect flex with DB (I want to connect it with oracle). How I can do that??
please help meeeeeeeeeeeeeee
You could write a JSP page that returned XML from HTTP posts from your Flex
application using <mx:HTTPService>
Or, you could use LiveCycle DataServices and either write a simple Java class
as a RemoteObject destination that queried your database using JDBC.
Or, you could go further and using LCDS with it's <mx:DataService> feature
and connect to a destination that makes use of either a SQLAssembler or a
HibernateAssembler where it would manage all CRUD operations to your DB table
and keep all connected clients in sync.
It all depends on what you're trying to do in your client application.
I have already made apps that retrieve data from an external server, using ColdFusion, but that option that Peter describes is really interesting. Can you explain it to me? And if you can give some sample code? I'll be eternally in doubt with you.
