    resolved [RESOLVED] direct database stuff into mx!!!

    i havent really looked at it deep enough but, will mx be able to access databases directly without the need to use a medium like php to be queried and replay back to flash? i mean could flash mx pull stuff from mysql????

    I hope it is not there!
    Those PHP scripts usually hide some details like a password to the database. If you are calling the db from flash, this would be in the movie (and so be readable to hackers)
    Someone coule build a script to talk to your database and change all the data

    you can do that easily enough with flash 5 if you use something like SQL Server 2000 with the XML features installed..

    (security is an issue though)

    Hi,

    if you are comparing flash talking to mysql on a unix server directly or via php, there is a lot of difference.
    The fact that there are known insecure environments should not encourage anyone to build only insecure systems.

    Well the way most hosts run now, your config.php file is not really that secure either. There also has to be something of value to risk getting caught.
