Hi all,

I want to set up an XML server for flash for developping purpose (intranet)

I've downloaded the AquaServer Extension from Branden Hall and the Java Runtime Environment from SUN like Branden says...

If i understand, the AquaServer is an add-on for a server, and this is my problem: witch (free) server under W2000 will support the Java Runtime Environment ? Does apache for Windows do ?

thanks for your help

AquaServer is a standalone. All you need to have is the JDK. Once you run AquaServer, your applications can communicate with it. Intranet only... which sucks... 'cause AquaServer is free and EASY to install... none of this edit that compile this point to that tel it this.... just click on go....

Once you have installed the java runtime environment, go to your "start" bar in windows, select "run" and then type in "command.com" now you should have an msdos window.

Navigate to the directory on your local drive that contains the Aquaserver files using the command "cd" for change directory:

cd c:\windows\profiles\you\desktop\aquaserver

then type:

java AquaServer 1025

at the command promt to start the server.

You should now be able to conncet to the server using port 1025 and localhost as the domain. With xmlSockets.

I've had a much better experience with the Flash/XML server that can be found at http://www.nowcentral.com. A MUCH better experience.

For windows machines, you may also want to look at flash nexus at http://www.flashnexus.com

We're updating it everyday, we're adding sql abilities to it this week, which would allow you to send sql statements from flash, and receive the data from the database.
