    I would like to know how to convert the mxml file to swf dynamically during runtime.

    I have to show the 360 degree view for many images on my php site and each image consists of many subsets of images. These images are to be configured in the mxml file dynamically and converted into swf for viewing in the browser. How can i proceed ?
