Chapter 17. Building a Flash Form > The Flash Form Data Cycle

17.1. The Flash Form Data Cycle

Before we delve into the particulars, let's take a macroscopic look at the typical steps in a form submission process:

  1. Flash receives data as user input.

  2. Flash prepares data for submission to the web server (collects and validates variables).

  3. Flash sends data to the web server via HTTP (or, optionally, HTTPS).

  4. The web server receives data and passes it to a server-side data-handling application (e.g., Perl script, PHP script, Cold Fusion, or ASP).

  5. The data-handling application parses and processes the submitted data.

  6. The data-handling application passes the results to the web server, which sends the results to Flash.

  7. Flash stores and, optionally, displays the results.
