    xml help

    jak418
      Hi

      I have very little knowledge when it comes to xml and servers, and I'm wondering if anyone could push me in the right direction for a project

      I'm trying to make a program where several people can connect to a server through flash and transfer data between their computers (does this make sense?)
      the people just need to be able to transfer some numbers and strings (like a basic chat system)
      how much of this needs to be done in flash and how much needs to be done seperately by a server, and is this too complicated to be able to do within a few weeks?

      any help is appreciated

          You will need to use server-side scripts for the storing of data portion since Flash cannot write info to the server beyond SharedObjects. FlashRemoting might be what you could use. I would look at the following site for a free PHP version.

          http://www.amfphp.org/

          The site will give you some good examples on how to use the technology.

            <link>The HTML TAGS project was to rehabilitate a two level building for residential use. The new distribution layout consisted of three, two-bedroom apartments: one in the first level and two in the second level. The interior patio was left open for the maximum use of natural ventilation and illumination. The roof terrace as well as the front facade was also rehabilitated.
