XML and Flash

Flash 5 was extended to allow XML to be used as an external data source.XML takes care of the content and Flash manages the presentation. So, update the XML document to change the content of the movie. No need to open the Flash movie. Bringing XML into a Flash movie is managed completely with ActionScript.

Flash 5 could only handle 3 XML files. Flash MX handles more and more efficiently.

XML object called Sockets allows Flash to connect directly to a live XML data source. Now you have live data being streamed into Flash.

Flash Remoting is free for ColdFusion servers.For Java or ASP.NET servers, it costs $1000 :o(
