9. Flash Remoting and PHP > 9.4. Using AMFPHP with Web Services

Using AMFPHP with Web Services

If you’d like to use AMFPHP to connect to pre-existing SOAP-based web services, you don’t have to write a single line of PHP. As long as your installation of AMFPHP is set up properly, connecting to web services with it is a breeze and is nearly identical to the process you would with ColdFusion (ColdFusion is the only other Remoting gateway that automatically supports connecting to external web services). See Chapter 10 for more information about web services with ColdFusion and .NET.

Not all web services work with AMFPHP. This is a limitation of the SOAP libraries that AMFPHP uses rather than a limitation of the AMFPHP library itself. If you want to test to make sure a particular web service is accessible before you start doing heavy development against it, download the CMX Remoting Testing Tool from http://www.communitymx.com/abstract.cfm?cid=E79F1303C1E096ED. The tool is a free extension that adds a new CMX Remoting Testing Tool panel to the Flash MX authoring environment and allows you to quickly execute remote methods and see the results.
