    Flash + ASP or PHP

    consider this a continuation to a previous thread that i've started.
    for you guys out there who r familiar with flash, ASP and PHP (don't hafta be pros).
    I was wondering...is there a preference of one language over the other with flash?
    if so, why?

    or if possible you may direct me to a place where i can find my answers.

    thnx
    Glad to be BACK

    Well, there is not much difference between all the Server Side Languages as they all somehow do the same thing. i.e;

    Query a Database
    Generate Database Driven Pages
    Handle Few Operations
    and the list goes on..


    Anyways, coming back to point. For ASP + Flash you might want to perform a search on http://www.4GuysFromRolla.com and http://www.planetsourcecode.com

    Whereas, for PHP + Flash you can do a search on http://www.phpbuilder.com as well as http://www.devshed.com


    This post would help out a bit. If you have any question, just shoot

    This choice also depends of your web server: if it's a Windows Server: you'd probably better stick tot ASP (windows server scripting technology). If your webserver is a Unix server, ASP isn't even an option (as it is imo only supported by NT servers), and you're better off with PHP. JSP's (java server pages) need an application server to run (e.g. tomcat)

    I think he's wanting to know if one works better with Flash than the other.

    I'll bet money that come version 6 of Flash, Cold Fusion support will be built in. If that's the case then the next few years could see a tremendous jump in CF use.

    At least by the pure designers. An easy scripting language with an excellent animation program, yep I would agree. Especially if flash supports 3d design (we can only hope)

    One of the newer users here is an expert at CFM/Flash integration... Hopefully he shows up, he's got an article on his site (coming out on SitePoint) and is well-versed

    I'm not a very huge fan of 3D support:
    - it would only make the plugin a lot heavier
    - Director (shockwave) has 3D support and imo is more suited for it.

    Creole: If I'm not mistaken, I think MM announced a couple of features for Flash 6 on Flash Forward (Amsterdam), CF integration is one of them. Quite logical after the Allaire MM fusion. I Better start learning

    I don't think it's on paper yet, but there are a couple of people @were-here who attended the Flash 6 presentation on FF2K1:

    I wish I could have gone to FlashForward, it's 15 mins driving from my house, but two things stopped me.

    I am not into making Flashanimations, and the tickets' price was very high!

    I could have sat behind a window and peek inside though..
