Hi there all,
I'm stumpted, I've beem searching the internet for, well what
seems forever, I've come across lots of different methods to
connect to a database, I'm aware that Flex builder 2 doesn't
connect dirrectly to SQL, but Flex 3 apparently does. I've tried
lots of different ways, AMFPHP, WDSL, Java, different add on
programs, but to be honest, I haven't got a clue.
I would like to connect to a database, say a multiuser login,
and people can upload, do their own thing on their own page, but I
don't know what is the best way to go about it, I have Flex 2 and
now 3 so if somebody out there could other me an easy suggestion to
do this, I would be extremely greatful.
Neither Flex 2 nor Flex 3 connect directly to a database.
Adobe AIR has a built-in version of SQL Lite and you can use that
if you are running in the AIR environment. But the database is
local to the machine.
For a shared database, one that lives on a remote server, you
need to use some middleware. For example, a Flex application can
use RemoteObject to send ActionScript classes to Java code on a
server and the Java code can deal with the database.
