XML in Flash (Paperback)

Synopsis

XML in Flash is an excellent introduction to creating state-of-the-art Flash applications with XML. XML is quickly becoming the most popular way to store and manage data. Flash's XML Socket makes it possible to network Flash front-ends to an application server. This allows developers to use a Flash interface for applications such as message boards, real-time chats, surveys, news feeds, and games.



XML in Flash begins by illustrating the basics of XML and the Flash XML Object. In Part I, Flash is used as a teaching aid as you learn the basics of Flash/XML integration. Part II covers how Flash works with middleware languages, such as PHP and ASP, as well as performance and optimization. You will also create a Flash message board with a database. Part III delves into the advantages of XMLSocket. Hands-on projects include creating a stock market ticker to receive XML data from servers. Finally, the appendixes include invaluable reference information on XML, XMLNode objects, and XMLSocket objects, as well as Frequently Asked Questions.



The example applications also illustrate the key concepts necessary for understanding the Flash/XML relationship. You will be able to use the applications on the accompanying Web site regardless of whether or not you spend the time to read and learn about their inner workings.

CRASH!MEDIA has worked on a wide range of Flash projects for the following companies: Coca-Cola, Intel, Alliance Atlantis, YTV, General Mills, University of Toronto, The Canadian Gemini Awards, MGI Software and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. As well as creating Flash rich-media ads for the Excite @ Home Network, Last year, CRASH!MEDIA's Flash site received the Best National/International Design award at the South by Southwest Interactive festival, and so far this year has received the coveted Macromedia Site of the Week Award.

Gregg Caines has been a freelance Web developer for a number of years, pinch-hitting for a number of big name companies including RaceFace, Durex, Aramark, and Crash!Media. His specialties are Flash, ASP, and PHP, but he enjoys tackling new languages and technologies just as much. When he's not downing cola's and hacking out web apps, he enjoys snowboarding, punk rock, and long walks on the beach.
