Today, designers and developers alike need to know their options for building successful, efficient, enterprise-level RIAs, or Rich Internet Applications. In this session, Robert Reinhardt, Director of Multimedia Applications at Schematic and co-principal of [theMAKERS], demonstrates how you can create data-aware Flash interfaces. You learn the differences in using URL-encoded text (LoadVars), XML, Web Services, Flash Remoting, Flex, and even Flash Communication Server as the means to deliver and integrate the data used by a sample interface. Robert uses the latest updates to the Flash MX 2004 data binding components to illustrate the examples. In the process, you will understand the pros and cons of using each server-side technology for the development of client and server frameworks for your Flash movies.
