    Web Services - whats the scoop?

    Chad L. Level 1
      I've moved from Flash MX 2004 to Flash CS3 and I'm a bit confused on the web services support in Flash CS3. To me it looks like if I want to use web services as they were in MX 2004 I need to set my project to ActionScript 2.0 and use the older libraries/components - I'd really prefer to leave my project at ActionScript 3.0 though for numerous reasons that I won't get into here.

      This page here:

      - suggests that ActionScript 2.0 is where the web services support is at, in the older libraries. However when I look at some Flex examples:

      - I find out it's able to make web service calls, and correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Flex 2 by default set to ActionScript 3.0? Or is what's happening here that they their Flex project to ActionScript 2.0 to call the web service like in Flash? I don't use Flex 2 so I can't be sure.

      I'd really like to know what the scoop is to call web services from a Flash project using ActionScript 3.0. I've ordered the ActionScript 3 Cookbook as well as pre-ordered Colin Moock's new ActionScript 3 book but they haven't arrived yet and I really need to get this figured out.

      Thanks for any help.
