The CCK module allows you to add custom content types and data fields to your Drupal web site, which can then be utilized to create a more customized Flash application. In this chapter, we will go over all the technical aspects of Flash and CCK by walking through a real-life example of building a Flash widget that shows recipes for a cooking web site.
