Full Description

XML is everywhere. It provides a versatile, cross-platform way of describing data. It is the way in which the information of the future will be stored. However, by itself, XML looks dull. It needs dressing up in diamonds and pearls to bring it to life. And how?

Flash is a visual feast, providing a fantastic way of interacting with web sites. It's the optimum format for presentation over the web. XML is the best way of storing the data that drives the Internet, for delivering a main feature and not just a sideshow. Mix them together and they create dynamite results.

This book assumes no prior knowledge of XML—though it's aimed at those familiar with Flash and ActionScript—and covers all the information you'll need to perform the marriage of XML with Flash, such as:

  • XML from scratch—the info you need
  • How to incorporate XML content into your Flash applications
  • Taking it further—XML as a living, breathing data source

Build up your knowledge via the comprehensive case study that runs through the book as it gains complexity and power.

Who this book is for

Flash designers with little or no knowledge of XML, who are interested in enhancing the dynamic integration of their sites, and Programmer-phobic designers who realize they need to improve their programming skills.
