Chapter 22. Integrating Flash with PHP > Echo Valley Becomes a Wishing Well

Echo Valley Becomes a Wishing Well

Storing information on the server and the ability to store information in such a way that a visitor can ask questions and retrieve answers from the server are what databases are all about. Information is stored in tables and organized in ways that queries can be sent to the server and the results given back.

A one-on-one interaction with the server, where a developer uses Flash as a front end for database management, is like Echo Valley. The server is pretty much giving back what the developer is putting in. But when you add the communication of the Internet, with people plugged into the same database, each inputting data, and the ability for any subscriber to retrieve data collected from everyone else, PHP at the core, driving this machine is less like Echo Valley and a lot more like a wishing well. You can throw a question to it and receive a new and unique answer based on the data stored within the database.
