I am new to Flex and I am starting to adapt some of my
previous ColdFusion Projects to Flex Technology. I am a bit confuse
about the Application and Session Scope Variables in ColdFusion.
Normally, if we are only using ColdFusion, we can use those
variables (ex.: Application.WebMasterEmail or Session.UserID) in
any page. Now that the page output is control by Flex, how to have
access "easilly" to those variables? Do we have to use RPC all the
time? I can see that we can create Remote Function in ColdFusion
CFC to return the variable needed but I was guessing that it might
be possible to have access directly with ActionScript 3.0 on a Flex
After few experiences, I finally found that it is possible to
call the SWF - and more than one on the same page - on a CFM page
directly. This means that the variables contains in Application and
Session scope are completely accessible through the CFM page itself
and can - dynamically - calls the right SWF.
For an example; if I want to show the SWF corresponding to
the french language (assuming that the user click the French
Language Option at some point), I can have a session variable that
contains the language to navigate and calls the SWF in french.
We still have a lot of question concerning Flex technology in
order to develop as we used to develop before but, so far so
