    Question Flash database objects?

    Hi,

    I have a social networking site that is driven by a database hosted in the USA. Are there any flash extensions that will allow a flash based application to retrieve information from or write information to my database?

    What I want to do is to write a game (for my site) that access the database and finds out how many "credits" a user has. The user will then be able to spend credits in the game, and awards and stats can be updated back to the users account on the database.

    Any help will be very much appreciated : )

    Nathan.

    You would probably have to make your own extension, or hire an extension developer to do it for you, as there are currently no extensions that can do what you want to do.

    It is impossible to directly talk to a database thru flash. But it is still possible to talk to websites

    You would have to use the Get Object in combination with a php script (or what ever you use server-side).

    To use the Get object in flash you need a file called crossdomain.xml in the root of your domain. ( See: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/articles...file_spec.html )

    Other (complex) way, you use the lacewing relay client for your flashgame and create a own mmf lacewing server with the SQLite extension.

    Could I host the lacewing on the same server as my site? I have a dedicated server. I believe to make online multiplayer games i will need lacewing anyway? also (sorry) does using lacewing cause any lag?

    Another alternative - does the java builder allow connection to an external database?

    Thanks for the help.
