Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Accessing RESTful services , part of Creating Data-Driven Applications with Flex 4.5 and PHP.
REST is short for representational state transfer, and it's an architecture for…handling web service requests over the web.…It's used extensively in frameworks like Ruby on Rails and some PHP frameworks…like Zend, CakePHP, and Symfony.…Because of this, you might already have some services exposed via REST which…Flex can handle, with or without writing code.…Let's go ahead and go to our REST service.…Here you can see at services.explorecalifornia.org. We have the tours as the…root, and then we have all these tour objects that are repeated over and over again.…
In each one, we have some different properties that are specific to that tour,…including the tour, and the package, and description, et cetera.…So what we are going to do is we are going to use this data and output it inside…of our Flex application.…We are going to repurpose the application that we'd use to get RSS data. So you…can see I already have a collection object and I already have a list here.…Only now it's bound to a different item renderer.…
