    Error while fetching more than 1000 mysql records


      I'm trying to fetch data from a MySQL database through PHP to a Flex application. When there are more than 1000 records in the resultset, the FaultEvent is returned. When I limit it to 1000 records, no problem at all. Any ideas? Code below:


      public function OldCustomerService(method:String=HTTPRequestMessage.POST_METHOD, resultFormat:String=RESULT_FORMAT_E4X, showBusyCursor:Boolean=true)
                  super(null, null);
                  this.requestTimeout = 0;
                  this.method = method;
                  this.resultFormat = resultFormat;
                  this.showBusyCursor = showBusyCursor;
              public function getAllProspects():void {
                  this.url = ALL_PROSPECTS_URL;
                  this.addEventListener(ResultEvent.RESULT, getAllProspectSuccess);
                  this.addEventListener(FaultEvent.FAULT, DAOUtil.communicationError);
                  var oldCustomersToken:AsyncToken = this.send();

          What is contained in the FaultEvent? Don't you have an error message in it?


          If you get a FaultEvent I would bet on an error caused by Php or MySql instead of Flex itself.

            It's an XML syntax fault. But when I limit down the records, there is no problem. It seems the code can't handle the quantity of records. Also, the error comes instant. While in debug mode, I see all the records still popping up in the console. So it seems he isn't waiting until the full xml is created and therefor creates the XML syntax error.

              It works with fewer records so it would be weird if it would be a php or mysql error. Seems to me Flex isn't waiting until everything is in. To give you a better idea of what's happening, I'll post the PHP code:


              * Created on 19-mrt-10
              * To change the template for this generated file go to
              * Window - Preferences - PHPeclipse - PHP - Code Templates
                   include '../../application/general/php/general.php';
                   // connect to the database
                   $mysql = mysql_connect(DATABASE_SERVER, DATABASE_USERNAME, DATABASE_PASSWORD) or die(mysql_error());


                  // select the database
                  mysql_select_db( DATABASE_NAME );
                  // query the database to retrieve all customers.
                  $query = "SELECT * FROM stores";
                  $result = mysql_query($query);
                  //start outputting the XML
                  $output = "<result>";
                  if($result) {
                      $output .= "<success>yes</success>";
                      $output .= "<stores>";
                      // create a store tag for each retrieved store
                      while($customer = mysql_fetch_object($result)) {
                          $output .= "<store>";
                          $output .= "<naam>$customer->naam</naam>";
                          $output .= "<adres>$customer->adres</adres>";
                          $output .= "<postc>$customer->postc</postc>";
                          $output .= "<wpl>$customer->wpl</wpl>";
                          $output .= "<land>$customer->land</land>";
                          $output .= "<telprive>$customer->telprive</telprive>";
                          $output .= "<telbureau>$customer->telbureau</telbureau>";
                          $output .= "</store>";
                      $output .= "</stores>";
                  } else {
                      $output .= "<success>no</success>";
                      $output .= "<error>\n";
                      $output .= "Reason: " . mysql_error() . "\n";
                      $output .= "Query: " . $query ."\n";
                      $output .= "</error>";
                  $output .= "</result>";
                  print ($output);



              When the error occurs, I get a <success>yes</success> and yet again the Fault error is thrown. Again, with fewer records, no problem.
