Chapter 10. XML Server
We have built Flash software that accesses a server, downloads XML, and displays the XML data. On the server, this data exists physically as a file.
In this chapter we address the server and how it delivers XML. The chapter primarily serves as an introduction to the concept of middleware and server-side scripting. We briefly survey the technology and focus on our choice of PHP. Then we ramp up to speed on PHP and replace our flat files with a transitional model that features two tiers of software.
