The complete tutorial on integrating Flash and XML to create powerful Web applications! Beyond eye candy: Integrate Flash with dynamic content, backend databases, server apps -- even other live users! Covers ActionScript, HTTP, SQL, PHP, and much more. Includes extensive sample code library on CD-ROM. Instead of just "gee-whiz" animation or cool user interfaces, Flash pros need to build truly useful sites that are viable for the long-term.

The complete tutorial on integrating Flash and XML to create powerful Web applications! Beyond eye candy: Integrate Flash with dynamic content, backend databases, server apps -- even other live users! Covers ActionScript, HTTP, SQL, PHP, and much more. Includes extensive sample code library on CD-ROM. Instead of just "gee-whiz" animation or cool user interfaces, Flash pros need to build truly useful sites that are viable for the long-term. That means interfacing Flash with dynamic content, backend databases, server-based applications, and even with other live users. The key to all these is XML. Now, there's a book that shows you exactly how to build enterprise Flash applications that integrate XML -- and leverage its full power. Flash and XML is structured in 19 progressive lessons. In each lesson, the authors teach a key principle of Flash enterprise integration by first explaining it, and then demonstrating it with working code. The book begins with an introduction to Flash and ActionScript that's ideal for working developers, and also serves as a useful refresher for Flash professionals. Next, the authors introduce XML, review the role of HTTP in Web development, and start writing PHP-based server code for accessing back-end data. Next, they show how to extend Flash and server-side systems to a third-tier, connecting with back-end databases via SQL. Every chapter's code samples build on what's come before, constructing a robust application that encompasses client-side Flash code, server-side XML, back-end remote database access, and even emulated "peer-to-peer" connections. For both Flash professionals (with or without XML experience) and software engineers involved in Web development (with or without Flash experience). Dov Jacobson has headed several game development studios, including a stint as Vice President of Game Development at Turner Broadcasting. He was also a Director of Product Development at Pansophic Systems. Currently an independent consultant, he has developed over a dozen commercially released games. Jesse Jacobson is Dov's son and is an undergraduate at Dartmouth College.
Flash and XML is a tutorial that brings readers up to speed on both technologies, offering clear and concise explanations. In addition, this book presents a number of important web technologies, including PHP, MySQL, and sockets. It shows how to work with these technologies to create n-tier, interactive systems that access the full resources of the Internet. Sample projects (trivia game, XML browser, simple chat) showcase the capabilities of Flash and XML together and demonstrate important concepts, approaches, and techniques. The companion web site at contains all of the source code referenced in the book, as well as updates, discussion groups, and links to other resources.
