Using Flash Remoting

Now that you have an idea how to create basic Flash movies and understand how to place them in your CFML pages, I can move on to the fun part. If you haven't guessed, the fun part is getting your Flash movies to interact with ColdFusion. This allows the movies to do things like display information from a database, collect information from users, or other processes that would normally only be possible via HTML forms or links.

The advantage, of course, is that you can use all the animation and interactivity tools in Flash's arsenal to make data presentations, navigation widgets, and data-collection tools that are far richer and more interactive than is generally possible with HTML alone. You can combine these tools to create user interfaces which are more intuitive and usable than with HTML pages alone, and which look and behave exactly the same with any browser.
