In AIR, there's no out of the box support for talking to external databases via ODBC, etc.
I can only think of one more way other than the SOA approach:
There's sockets support so if your database supports socket access, your AIR app can talk to it. Though you'd have to code the entire thing yourself :(
Pretty much what I assumed.
Going down the path of using the Flex SDK and BlazeDS and targeting AIR, so my problem will solved so to speak.
Just wondering of there is any plans and/or documentation (haven't seen any as of yet) to extend AIR either via C/C++ and/or Java with 3rd party extensions? I know of a secure Web browser being developed by a team at the University of Illinois that has the design specifications that allows 3rd party extensions for which the Web browser kernel will handle all security so any breaches via the 3rd party extensions will not compromise the Web browser itself, as the entire process itself is running in a sandbox, thereby also protecting the client as well; so I just wanted to know if anything similar exists capability-wise for AIR either now or in the future.
