Thanks for the reply, Julian.
Well, afaik, there are two ways to pass data back to flash with AMFPHP,
either by sending back the mysql resource id which then maps to a
ResultSet/RecordSet on the client side, or by passing already fetched
arrays, which maps to Array/Objects (or classe objects if you use VO
If you pass a resource id, you have a recordset object and all the benefits
you get from the class. However, sometimes you need to "attach" data from
other tables into the returned object, if you pass the resource id, you
don´t have such control at the server side. That´s why its sometimes
confusing to decide what would be the best method to use... pre-fetch the
data and handle pagination and other things or return the resource id and
have flash handle all this with the recordset class... I may be wrong on the
concepts, if so, please I would be happy if someone could enlight me!
