I'm creating a flash based web site. For communication with
DB I'm using asp. When is better to use direct communication
between flash and asp and when is better to use xml (it's created
by asp) to communicate with flash?
There's probably no definitive rule on when to use XML.
In general though, think about whether the data you're
exchanging is ever likely to be delivered to other front-ends, and
whether another developer might need to understand how your data is
If neither scenario is likely, you should probably just go
with whatever is most convenient and quick.
