Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Exchanging data from PHP to Flex and back, part of Flex 4.5 and PHP: Creating Data-Driven Applications.
While PHP is a generally type-less environment, Flex and ActionScript are fully typed.…This means that every variable in ActionScript is set up to hold a specific…type of information.…These can be a number of things, including dates, numbers, strings, or objects…which contain multiple other type properties.…We need to be conscious of this when we are working with remote services.…Keep in mind that ActionScript allows for casting and isn't as strongly typed…as some languages like C or Java, even.…For example, a string that contains numeric data could have a math function run…on it without crashing.…
That said, you want to make sure to know the type of data that comes in from a service.…We are going to talk about the value object or data transfer object pattern.…Basically what we're going to do is we are going to have a lot of services that…are exchanging data back and forth that are a collection of properties, and we've…talked about this in other movies as well.…What you can do is you can configure return types and input types for your services.…
