As a Flex developer I have switched from Adobe Flash Builder to IntelliJ following some advice by a relative of mine who is a Java programmer at Google. It's been brilliant.
I am now about to commence my first data driven Flex project which requires PHP and MySQL integration. I have never used either of these.
Initially I will be developing this web based Flex project on my own on a Mac laptop. Can someone please provide some guidance as to how I configure my laptop for development and debugging.
Do I need to install MAMP? and how should I configure IntelliJ 13 so that the server hosting my web page (and compiled swf file within) can communicate to the MySQL database?
