Flash Professional 8 Building Data-Driven Applications

with Phil Heinz

Video: Welcome

While Flash Professional 8 is well known for its vector animation capabilities, it is also well suited for building powerful custom database applications. In Flash Professional 8 Building Data-Driven Applications Phil Heinz teaches users how to connect to data sources using Web-based scripting languages, such as ASP, PHP, or Perl, or using Web application servers, such as ColdFusion or Java. Phil also shows how to use always-on socket connections to make real-time data-driven applications, such as multiplayer games, chat rooms, and dashboard applications. Using static XML files to simulate data from any data source, he takes viewers through the process of importing and handling data from a database inside Flash Professional 8 to build Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Exercise files accompany the training videos.
