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
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.
