Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Handling raw XML data with E4X, part of Flex 4.5 and PHP: Creating Data-Driven Applications.
Flex can handle XML natively.…Because Flash Player has built-in support for the ECMAScript 4 XML API, also…called E4X, XML can be accessed quite easily.…When using web services, this can be very handy.…It can allow Flex developers to indig XML, handle it quickly, and then send it…right back in the same format.…So let's go ahead and change our service call from RSS objects to XML.…So maybe you don't want to have to import these particular libraries and use them.…
Maybe you just want to handle the XML directly.…So what we'll do is let's go ahead and get rid of the RSS data that we've been…using, and let's change the format to handle XML.…We don't have to loop through this.…We can just get rid of everything in that function.…Notice our resultFormat was set to text.…That's because it was coming in as a string and we were using those RSS packages…to essentially parse it out.…Ctrl+Space will always give you the hinting of the options available.…We're going to change it to E4X.…
Note that XML will come in as a different XML data type.…
