On the ProDevTips.com site there's a new tutorial talking about mapping a class using the Zend_Amf component (of the Zend Framework) to map functionality with Flash.
Instead Iâ€™m mapping the variables explicitly in the Shockwave, I have no example of doing the reverse, ie sending an object from flash and populating. Iâ€™m however not going to use an ORM like Doctrine with the project Iâ€™m going to do here so that wonâ€™t really be a problem. The main thing is that we can easily populate AS objects.
They include both the Flash code - connecting the Flash application to the PHP gateway - and the PHP code to create a Zend_Amf object and handle the Flash request. In their example, they call a User class to locate a user record.
