Default Database access - new things in Flash 8?

I'm about to teach myself how to pull data from an Access database into Flash. I just wondered if there were any changes in Flash 8 to make this process easier. Otherwise, I'll go find some tutorials that were probably written for MX 2004.


P.S. If anyone has any good tutorials, please point them out. I'll probably be going the ASP route for this first try.

As far as I can remember from what I have read, there we no mention on the database side... So, you will need to use server side scripting language to talk to the database...

You could setup a virtual directory in IIS with Access as the datasource, however, I don't know if Access supports "FOR XML RAW|AUTO". That way you could merely use Flash to "talk" to the DB. This is extremely insecure if not locked down to the Nth degree, but it can be handy for DB queries without a server script.
