How to Create a client-server web application with Flex & PHP
This tutorial demonstrates how to create what is called a complete client-server web application which consist of a Web Application, PHP, and MySQL. The tutorial shows how to automatically generate the PHP necessary to talk to a MySQL database using Adobe Flex Builder 3.
The steps that you will go through to create the client-server web application are:
1. Create a project
2. Change application server type to PHP
3. Set server location, Web root c:\wamp\www, Root URL http://localhost (port 80)
4. Validate configuration
Note: Mike named the Flex MXML application PHP4. This is just the name of the application not the version of PHP that we are running (which is Php 5) - dumb name choice on my part. Should have called it MyPHPApp.
