Manfred Weber has posted the first part of a quick series looking at pulling information from a PHP-generated SOAP web service inside of a Flash document.
A PHP Pear package to easily create Webservices and WSDL. After several tests with PHP and C# I thought it is time to find a better way in Flash to create backend-driven applications.
He starts with the creation of a simple web service that just returns a string ("Hello!") including what the information page would look like in a browser. Next up is building the Flash side of things - using the serivces.WebService object already in Flash to pull in the info for the service and make the call to the "hello" method.
