Since Flash Lite 2.0 the use of XML is now possible. So I wanted to update my old CDV made in Flash Lite 1.1. There is no special difficulties the only trouble I encounter was the loading of the XML itself. XML can only be loaded in a none absolute link. The only way I founded to overpass it was to load the data in a txt file (ex : myXml.txt). Then with a loadVariablesNum loaded it and finally transform it again in a XML.
Surely it exist a nicer solution but I haven’t found it yet. The good point of this method is that you can let your Flash Application on the Mobile Phone but the data will always be fresh and relevant. Somethings approching the Rich Mobile Application (?).
