I have written a simple webapp and am running it on
and I'm using an HTTPService to retrieve information:
var httpService:HTTPService = new HTTPService();
httpService.url = "
http://localhost:8080/myApp"; httpService.resultFormat = "xml";
I compile the swf, and then open the swf file in my browser
with the url:
I get a "Security error accessing url", since I am going
"across domains". I tried using file://localhost/home... but that
did not help.
I'm wondering what is the easiest way to get this working?
Since this is primarily just for testing the SWF during
development, I didn't want to have to create a crossdomain.xml or
have to copy the swf file to the test webservers root, or setup a
I'm hoping there might be some "disable security" feature I
could set in my flash player or during compilation of the swf file
that would allow this to work without extra overhead.
PS. I see there is a message that says: "Please use "Attach
Code" to include any sample code in the message". I'm uding FF3,
and I couldn't find ant "Attach Code" option
