    Can I directly retrieve and store data in a remote MySQL database?

    pxstein Level 1

      When I implement a Flex app then I need a (MySQL) database  in background
      to store and retreive data.

       

      The transfer from and to the server with the database should be implemented
      - normally - with SOAP or HTTP(S).

       

      Ok, but is there a more direct way to DIRECTLY access the remote MySql database?

      Say the user of the Flex app wants to retrieve some data from the database and enters
      a login+password. Flex in turn takes this info and connects directly to MySQL
      listening at

      Mind the port! Is something like this possible?

      Or do I always have to use an intermediate web server?
