Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    xml- security?

    Hi

    I am planning a flash app which inputs data from xml.

    My question is, is this secure? Or should php/mysql be used?

    Thanks

  2. Well what kind of data and static or dynamic XML? If someone finds the location of teh XML (pretty easy) Then anyone can access the data.

    well I am primary worried about someone changing the content of the xml

    should I ideally use a mysql database, then input that into flash?

    its pretty hard for other people to change the xml. If they havent got your server password that is. But if you want to be totally sure you could always create an xml file from a database and read that back in.

  5. No-one would be able to change the XML unless they hack your server, and if they did that they would have access to your database aswell.
