    External SWF Compiler

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know a way to comile swfs outside of Flash on the server?

    For example, say I have a swf that accepts a variable called name. But the variable comes from outside of the swf. So someone sets the variable from a web form. I then want to embed that variable value into the swf, so it will always be with the swf. My thinking was to create another swf that loads contains the first swf and also contains the new value.

    Does this make sense? And does anyone know how it could be done? Additional software on the server?

    Thanks.

    You can try to save the data to a text file or XML file and have the new (template/generic) .swf use this as its source for data..

    or try using s SO (shared object) that resides on the users computer possibly)

    Thanks Whispers, but I need the data and swf to be contained in a single file that can then be sent to another location.

    I recall reading a thread about an open source swf compiler, something that could sit on the server. I know I've seen something like that or perhaps I'm just wishing that I did.

    It seems that a server-side product called SWFScout by ByteScout can accomplish this task.

    http://www.bytescout.com/swfscout.html

    I have not tried this product so this is not a recommendation, just information.

    might look into Ming too, it's oldschool, but looks like it's still being supported:
