I am creating an application that draws on a lot of textual information, currently in a database. The app is to run locally, on end user machines only, not from a server, not connected to the web, and built in flexbuilder 3. Therefore I need to access the data directly. I don't want to use AIR, but make this web-enabled as well. It looks like the only solution is to build the database containing all the content, in something local like Access, and then write it all out as an xml file, and access it directly from there. Not keen on this as editing the content will be a nightmare. Does anyone have any other solutions?
