Flash Drag & Drop Multiple targets and sending variables through PHP

Hi everyone,

A client has asked me to create a Flash based drag and drop system where the user will drag items onto a "canvas". The canvas will be divided into "Good", "Bad" and "OK", and the user has to rank the items by dragging them from a menu on to the canvas into their respective categories - good, bad or ok.

When the user has done that, the information will need to be sent via php or asp (I have a developer who'll be doing the database bit) and be stored. When the user goes back to the flash system, the flash will have to call back the information and display it as it was before, on the canvas. I think it would be best if it was snapped to targets, so that I wouldn't have to store exact X & Y coordinates.

I'd just like to know whether this system is possible, and whether anybody has any experience with a similar system? If so, any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
