TOPICS COVERED IN THIS CHAPTER:
As has been discussed throughout the book, there are many techniques for creating dynamic Flash content for devices. However, up until now, all the techniques discussed have been client-side solutions that rely on ActionScript to create dynamic content. This chapter introduces Macromedia Generator and JGenerator, shows how they can be used to create dynamic content for devices, and examines two techniques for creating dynamic Flash content the first completely server side, the second a combination of client and server.
With this information, you can dynamically author Flash movies that run on older Flash players (as far back as the Flash 3 Player). You also will be able to create complex Flash 4 or greater applications that contain all the data needed to dynamically create content. This allows you to create Flash applications that use dynamic data regardless of whether the device is connected to a network at the time the application is run.
