Combining Servlet with Flash

    How can I use Servlet and Flash together? Servlet for database records, and the Flash for interface.
     My database saves the records on logoff, and send them to Flash for each login. Flash will get the variables and will show the needed screen output (layers or objects or ?) according to the variables. It will be possible to change the variables with buttons in Flash, but the records will be saved on logoff.
     I can explain more clearly with an example. I have an integer variable 'x' which is saved in my database. I want Flash to do these: 1- When I login, Flash will connect to the database and get the value of 'x'. If x=0, I want to see a square on my screen. 2- Flash will include a button on screen, when I click it, 'x' value will change to 1 in database. And when x=1, a triange shape will appear on screen instead of a square shape. 3- On logoff, 'x's last value will be saved to the database for getting back on next login.
     I repeat my question, simply: How can I use Servlet and Flash together? Thanks.

can't you use the servlet to query the DB and write out the HTML using the value it retrieved for flash to use?

use the action loadVariables() in flash to read the value.

Ex.
In Flash :
loadVariables("myJsp.jsp");


In myJsp.jsp :
<%
out.print(x=1&y=2&z=3);
%>

when the action in Flash is done you will get
x=1, y=2 and z=3 in your movie clip.
