This is just a straight copy from a posting by Barry Beattie (sorry - can't find your blog to link to :-<) on the Apollo Coders list, but I wanted to get it up on MXNA in case this was news to anyone else (it was certainly news to me, but I'm not keeping a close eye on these things).
FYI in case this has slipped through the cracks:
thanx to the humble flash.net.Socket, Apollo can now connect to mySQL databases.
but that's not the only one:
next step is an AIR installer to install the database too.
one step closer
just an FYI barry.b
