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
Mind the port! Is something like this possible?
Or do I always have to use an intermediate web server?
No. There is no direct way to do this. Flex must go thru a server that would connect to database and serve as in intermediary between the DB and Felx.
