flash offers some great actionscript-functions to work with php (or any other serversided language) over http

there is an object called LoadVars - i do not exactly know how to handle it within flash, but it can access php-scripts over http and send some post or get variables to it. in this script you can connect to the sql-db and update it using the information provided by the swf.

maybe there are ready drag'n'drop-components: http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/flash/components.html
(specally http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/flash/php.html)

or take a short look at http://www.flashkit.com (maybe you find some resources there)

hope this helps? .ma

Does anyone know of any articles on integrating PHP, MySQL and Flash to
perform a drag and drop routine for updating a db?

Specifically, I have a client who is _INSISTING_ that I integrate a drag and
drop feature into his railcar storage application. He wants to be able to
view two railcar storage tracks, Track A and Track B, then drag and drop
cars from Track A to Track B ( or Track B to Track A ). Once he positions (
orders ) all the cars properly on each track, I need to update a MySQL db to
reflect the changes.

I have already developed the above feature so that he can do this
'textually', but he is _determined_ that he must have the graphic 'drag and
drop' feature.

There may be another method ( Javascript ? ) to accomplish the same effect.
I am certainly open to any advice and/or opinions. Any pointers would be
_greatly_ appreciated.
