Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Exposing PHP class as Flex service, part of Creating Data-Driven Applications with Flex 4.5 and PHP.
The first thing you want to do when you start building your Flex client…application is to add a new data service.…This will point to an existing PHP class and allow you to access it…directly from Flex via AMF.…We will look at how to use Flash Builder wizards to create proxy classes that…can then be dragged and dropped in your code to access your PHP services.…So let's go ahead and open up our Project, Explore California Admin 05-05.…This is a basic application.…Currently, we don't have any data services configured, as you can see by…the Data/Services view.…
So go ahead and click the Connect to Data/Service Link,…select PHP by Zend, and click Next.…Then we are going to locate the PHP service we want to access.…If you click Browse, this should expose everything in a PHP class.…If you don't see anything here, it means you haven't linked up a PHP class.…If you want to learn how to do that, please refer to the movie "Setting Up a Flex…PHP project in Flash Builder."…So go ahead and open services and point to PackageService.php and click OK.…
