I'm not an expert in flashcomm but I did some research and I hesitate between some achitectures I think are possible. I would like to store additional data concerning the users, the stats, some applications,... Before using the flashcomm technology, I was using php/mysql with the loadvars function in flash clients.
I tried to use the loadvars function in a server side application but it seems to not be accepted, even the 'iboijh = new XML();' is not recognize but perhaps I do a mistake . Is there a way to communicate in the old way with a distant server when you are in the server side of flashcomm? If not, I have thus I think three choices:
- using remote persistent sharedobjects as database but is it as efficient? What are the pros and cons?
- using the flash remoting with a java (or coldfusion, but I would prefer java) server hosting the database. But I would have to pay 1000$ more in that case and to change some of my scripts from php to java.
- using the amfphp remoting system. Have I also to buy the flash remoting software in that case?
Is there any other possibilities? What is the best one to choose in my case (large database, php site and mysql database already existing, short time period of devlopment)?
thanks for the help
