It was really a great experience to know about your work on flash and XML. I saw your official(www.aip.net.au) as well as your personal (www.sasjacobs.com)websites. Especially I like the quote of the moment on your website and the amazing pics!!!
I am surely gonna buy your books !!! It has been my long time desire to learn flash. Apart from this book which focuses on Ajax and XML + little bit of flash, could you suggest me any good books to start from scratch for flash ?
There are lots of great books on Flash 8 (the current version). If you want to learn about ActionScript, I would recommend Object Oriented ActionScript for Flash 8. It's a great introduction and I contributed 2 chapters to it.
However, Flex is an alternative approach to build SWF applications - it uses an XML language, a bit like the .NET framework. As far as I'm aware, there are no books around about this version because it's so new. ActionScript 3.0 and Flex Builder have been recently released. I'm currently editing a book on the topic by Charles Brown and that looks like being great.
