From what I can find on the web, I need to use more than just
BlazeDS to get from a Flex application to a MySQL backend...
Firstly is that correct, or can BlazeDS handle that directly?
If not, and I need another layer, then what advantage is
there using BlazeDS at all?
What options are available, from the tutorials I've read, I
think I can use java, PHP, and some others that I'm not terribly
I'd be very appreciative if someone could shed some light on
this topic and maybe point me in the way of any tutorials that can
get me started linking flex to mysql. I've found a few, but haven't
had any success with any of them yet.
BlazeDS alone cannot get you connected to MySQL and do
operations on the database. You can try Data Management feature in
LiveCycle Data Services (LCDS).
BlazeDS gives you Remoting, which is very powerful and
useful, cause it will allow you to invoke Java methods from Flex
applications. BlazeDS handles all the serialization and
de-serialization of the objects. Its got more.
