Concept

Well finally I'm going to restart this blog from scratch (only the blog, not the project!). So, here is the concept of Flexqueries.

Adobe Flex is a great framework, and Flex Builder a nice environment (I'm talking about FB4). My initial problem was to access a database a SIMPLE WAY from this wonderful environment. An option was to use coldfusion. But it's proprietary and unavailable on standard, cheap hosting platforms. PHP is.

So, I decided to implement my own Flex database environment, that is PHP friendly.

Flex + SQL queries = Flexqueries !

The server side is written in PHP. It uses adodb library to access the database, so many many interfaces are available. Basically, the server receives the query to execute (with its parameters), executes the SQL and returns the response formatted.

Response is then processed by the client side (Flex) and is available using easy-to-understand methods. Data can also be directly bound to fields like TextField, DateField, TextArea, RichTextEditor, and any kind of field we can imagine.
