Flex, when run in the FlashPlayer in a browser, cannot access any local/client assets, including the filesystem. Security rules enforce this. so a web app must save to and retrieve from a server.
A Flex app, when runder AIR, can access the client file system.
Can i open XML file from server and draw Shapes on to canvas whatever is in saved XML?
I would think you should be able to do what you describe. Once you download the XML file from the server you should be able to use the data however you choose in your Flex app. If you really want to access the local hard drive, consider Adobe AIR. It is the next big thing and is very kool.
