Flash > Drupal Feeds


This is a questions more around how something actually works (in general) rather than anything specific.

I have a flash site and a Drupal CMS solution. The Drupal database feeds the flash content.

Could I ask at a very basic level a few questions around this just so that I can get an understanding of how this works.

How does the content get extracted from Drupal into the flash file? I think from what I have seen an XML file gets generated and the Flash file reads this feed - could someone explain that a little more for me.

Also in flash if an XML feed is read then what script/code in flash deals with picking this feed up and interpreting it? What is the language and where does it sit? Also for the XML feed which is driven from Drupal how does this get defined and generated? Where does the XML file usually sit?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

one method is for flash to use use actionscript to pull the information from the database and then display it
there are several methods .. direct access to the database, xml import, look into the documentation and you will get some ideas on how it works
