Requirements: PHP, Flash, and a database like MySQL
One of the more challenging tasks of developing rich content on the web that utilizes a flash fr-font-end and a database back-end is getting the two to talk to each other in an easy and fast way. If you ever tried doing this work without any helper classes, you know how difficult it is to import and setup schema, setup calls and callbacks, etc.
What AMFPHP does is provide you with a gateway from which flash can call php functions, retrieve database data, use other APIs such as flickr, and google, and format the data, all with only a couple lines of code.
I seriously suggest that for all those that have not yet tried AMFPHP, please do so because you’ll be surprised how easily and quickly you’ll be up and running with your dynamic flash/database applications.
