I thought to add the update tutorial for XML and Flash as the XML and FLash interaction has been upgraded to a higher level in Actionscript3. Since this is my first post for AS3 I will start by referring to a great tutorial for Flash and XML in AS3 .
You will feel at home if you have gone through my past 2 tutorials regarding XML. Those refer to AS2 but will clear your understaning regarding XML in general.
In AS3 the XML parser is updated and now its called ECMAScript for XML (E4X). Unlike traditional XML parsing APIs, E4X makes XML feel like a native data type of the language.If you still wish to use the old XML parser, then the good news is you can still use it.But the old XML class is moved to a different package in AS3.
