    Database Issues

      Ok, admittedly, I am very new to Flex/Flash, but I've been reading through the LiveDocs and other Adobe resources for days now and I can't seem to find any of the answers that I need. Before I ask anything, the app I'm trying to create would be an AIR application that would be able to view/edit any database files loaded into it by the user.

      1. What file types (as far as databases are concerned) are able to be imported into Flex applications? Can I directly display a *.mdb file and explore/edit/modify it in a Flex app executed on AIR?

      2. They go into great long explanations on HTTPservice, etc... But, how do you pull files from the local computer?

      Any help or explanations will be greatly appreciated.

      Thank You,

          If mdb is access then I don't think you can do that.

          AIR does support a SQLLite database natifly, may be you want to look into that??

          The stuff you read on HTTPservice, Blaze-DS etc might be client/server apps running in a web-browser.
