Latest News and Developments
Microsoft is eager for Flash developers to use its search engine! A fairly recent post in their downloads section contains sample code for integrating Flash and the Live.com search API through a SOAP interface. This is a good development, which teams the speediness and scope of XML and Flash’s rich graphical interface capabilities. In sum total, you can create fairly reliable search apps that query Live.com for results. It might also be possible to parse these results according to the needs of your particular website. Microsoft suggests Macromedia Flash 8 Professional as a development platform. You’ll also need an application ID that will allow you to access the Live.com API. Enjoy!
