Hello Everyone,



After spending hours and hours Googling. I am new to Flex and
would like to learn to interact with dynamic data slowly. Indeed,
too much information is available online but have yet to come
across the right info. This is what I have so far:



Flex Builder 3.0 configured with Eclipse.

Mysql 5.0

Php

JDK6.0

Appache 2xx



I followed couple of online tutorial and realized that I need
to install FDS 2.0 which for the life of me cannot be found on
Adobe. I have done searches for FDS2.0 Express Edition and directed
to Adobe download site and when I tried to download it, I end up
with Flex Builder 3.0 NOT FDS 2.0.



Right to the point:

What server(s) do I need:



JBoss

FDS Tomcat

Jrun 4

Blaze DS



What else do I need to get going Data Services? I would
highly appreciate your help.



Thanks.

Hi,



FDS is now LiveCycle Data Services (LCDS). Please find more
details on LCDS at the URL below. You can also have a look at
BlazeDS, which is a free and open source version on LCDS. Please
find more details on BlazeDS at the URL below.

All said BlazeDS/LCDS is for Java based back ends. If you are
using PHP and need to get the power of Remoting and other you can
try AMFPHP.



Regarding servers, you can use Apache Tomcat/JBoss/Jrun4 for
Java as the server side technology. If you are using PHP as the
server side technology then you might have to configure the servers
mentioned above a little bit to get the PHP scripts executed.



BlazeDS/LCDS is not a server.
