MAX 2007 Update

For everyone who’s asked – I am *not* going to be at MAX this year. It would be great to meet you all in person and I hope to get the opportunity next year.

While at MAX take the opportunity to meet your colleagues – MAX is a great place to network and you never know, that person you eat lunch with might have the next great idea that you can help make a reality!

Also stop by the Support desk and meet members of the Adobe Support teams. They are available to answer your questions and experts in all our products will be there throughout the show.

Have a safe and most excellent MAX!

Sharing Data Between Applications

This is a topic that comes up from time to time and is applicable to both Flash and Flex as the solution lies within the Flash Player.

Let’s say you have a customer’s profile you’d like to store on their local machine. Perhaps your web site has multiple HTML pages, some with Flash or Flex applications and you would like those applications to use the same customer profile information.

Providing this is not a lot of information, the SharedObject is the best way to go. SharedObject is a class for, well, sharing data. A small data file is stored on the local computer and requires the end-user’s consent (which is granted by default). The end-user also has control over how much space to allocate for ALL SharedObjects – not just for your applications. Bear these restrictions in mind when writing your applications – you may need to query the user for the information if it cannot be stored and retrieved.
