Data Integration with Flash

This tutorial illustrate several ways to use data binding and the data components in Macromedia Flash Professional 8. Many of the tutorials use public web services and therefore require that you have an Internet connection. In addition, the tutorials won't work in a browser because of sandbox restrictions, but they will work in the Flash authoring environment or Flash Player.

These tutorials are working models that illustrate how to use the data components (XMLConnector, WebServices Connector, RDMBSResolver and XUpdateResolver) with data binding in Flash Professional 8. They are not intended to be production-ready applications.

The use of public web services in these tutorials does not imply that you should use them for real-world applications. In fact, Macromedia does not recommend using public web services directly from within any client-side application. For more information, see "Applications and Web Services" in the "Data Integration" tutorial in Using Flash (in Flash, select Help > Using Flash).
