View Full Version : callaing a database from server-side actionscript

07-20-2003, 06:45 AM
I am working with a mysql database.
Is it possible to connect to the database from server-side actionscript?
For example, I want to do user-validation against a mysql users table.
I can do this calling an ASP paga from the client, but I don't know how to make the same call from server-side.
I tried to understand this issue consulting Macromedia documentation, but all I can find is about ColdFusion and FlashRemoting, but nothing is clear to me.
Is it possible to make this call using Comm Server MX alone? Or with Comm Server + Flash Remoting Server MX?

This Flash Remoting works, as you wrote, natively with ColdFusion (and J2EE and some other), but it has been ported to PHP (AMFPHP) and Perl (google for it) .. works the same from within your (client or server-side) ActionScript as described in the manuals for Remoting with ColdFusion.

Comm Server MX itself cannot directly connect to MySQL (or any other DBMS)
