I guess my questions would be whether doing an http form post (and attaching a file to it) is easy in Flex. Second question would be whether this is the most common approach, and third would be for this kind of use case, how else would you solve the communication between flex and the server? Can you drop a BLOB into an XML packet or even a formal SOAP call? Are there standard approaches for doing this in Flex?
Just to clarify, this use case is distinct from a Flex file upload tool optimized for uploading multiple files that are independent of other data. I'm looking to have a way of uploading a User with first name, last name, DoB, resume and photo and am just wondering the default approach and perhaps any other alternatives . . .
Any input wildly appreciated!
