I am looking through the "Flex 3 in Action, in chapter 8 where I am wonder if you can supply a DataGrid using a collection, but the collection will pulling from a file with the XML data. Or, simply put . . . how to feed a dataGrid using a XML flat file. I was play with pulling data from an Oracle database using JDBC collection. I know that I can create code to output my java/query into a XML format to a file. How do I feed a file into a collection and onto a dataGrid?
