The pureXML® capabilities of IBM DB2® allow you to store XML natively in a database without modification, while Adobe® Flex® applications can read XML directly and populate Flex user interfaces. In this three-part article series, you will create a microblogging application that takes advantage of pureXML, Web services, and Adobe Flex; and even allows you to publish your microblogging updates on Twitter. In Part 1 of the series, you learned about Web Services and how they are enabled using DB2 pureXML as you created the microblog database and tested it. Part 2 tapped into Adobe Flex and ActionScript to create the user interface of your application. In this article, the final part of the series, you will learn how to use your pureXML Web Services to publish your microblog entries to an HTML page.
