I have a bunch of .Net web services that I am consuming from
flex. I dont want to hard code the url because it changes between
development and production. Is there a way I could store them in a
configuration file and retrive them in code later? I also have a
bunch of other variables that need similar external configuerable
I've been facing the same issue, currently have some
hardcoded constants within my Flex app that get compiled in. The
first idea was to load the config file through another HTTPService
call that loads an xml configuration file from the service. That
kinduve runs into the chicken and egg problem though, where do you
configure the url for that file?
I think what I'm going to end up doing is loading a config
file using an HTTPService through a relative url, it's safe to
assume that config file should be served from the same place you
are serving your flex .swf app. Then that file can contain the url
for any true services that you call.
