Database Issues


Level 1
Ok, admittedly, I am very new to Flex/Flash, but I've been
reading through the LiveDocs and other Adobe resources for days now
and I can't seem to find any of the answers that I need. Before I
ask anything, the app I'm trying to create would be an AIR
application that would be able to view/edit any database files
loaded into it by the user.

1. What file types (as far as databases are concerned) are
able to be imported into Flex applications? Can I directly display
a *.mdb file and explore/edit/modify it in a Flex app executed on

2. They go into great long explanations on HTTPservice,
etc... But, how do you pull files from the local computer?

Any help or explanations will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

If mdb is access then I don't think you can do that.

AIR does support a SQLLite database natifly, may be you want
to look into that??

The stuff you read on HTTPservice, Blaze-DS etc might be
client/server apps running in a web-browser.
