I have a project I'm working on for school.  Creating an immersive interactive room, one where the user is given a PPC and allowed to explore the room.  Need to have a flash app playing on the PDA that can send and recieve data from a Server with a DB on it.  

We're using wireless points and a positioning app that uses Java.  

There will be 2 seperate Flash apps running, one on the PDA and one on a central video display.

What's the best way to get the PDA app to communicate to the server?  Need to trigger events and swfs to play on both the PDA and central video display.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If its just a student project then for a faster development you can use httpSocket of eVB on PDA and on Server can  use any of the languages java, php, asp, perl. If its required to use Flash on PDA then I suggest you read about loadVars, loadVariables and XMLSocket.

Okay thanks.  

So regardless of whether or not it's going via the net or a local network in this case, XML Sockets is still the way to go?  

(Sorry if this is a stupid question, just trying to get edumacated. )

1. Looking for suggestions/ides


 I have a static text box that is - 7900 pixels high! Crazy right.

 I am trying to achieve an effect similar to a scrolling credits page for the
text in this static text box.

 You all know the problem: Flash is limited to text boxes of 2800 in height.

 I could break the box into smaller more manageable boxes, and tween them one
after the other to achieve the desired effect, but this does not seem like an
elegant solution. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to achieve this?

 Thank you
