My development environment is setup to match my production
environment as closely as possible.....
So I have Coldfusion (installed as server configuration, not
multi or J2EE) and IIS6 setup on a server lets call WebServer
There is an IIS Website setup called TestSite at IP
There is a DNS entry setup called TestSite pointing to that
So if I were developing normal Coldfusion website. I would
place all files in a folder and access the application like:
Now I would like to start developing flex 2 applications. I
installed Flex 2 builder/coldfusion extensions on WorkstationA
which is where dreamweaver is installed and works flawlessly
with RDS to develop coldfusion sites etc....
I go to create a Flex project in the Flex Builder
File - New - Flex Project
I then choose
Coldfusion Flash Remoting Service
I uncheck Use local Coldfusion server as the coldfusion
server is not local, its remote.
I have mapped a drive on WorkstationA ( v:\ ) which points to
the website TestSite's root folder
FIRST PROBLEM - No WEB-INF folder is there.... Ok so I copy
the WEB-INF folder from d:\cfusionmx7\wwwroot to v:\
Validate Location... success
immediately I see a message that a folder called bin already
exists in the project location and will be overwritten....fine
a Red X appears at the top of the next dialog....
Says: Invalid path for resource: /bin. Must include project
and resource name.
I try adding v:\ to the path of the main app file and to the
output folder path.... error goes away.
Looks like I'm good, but If I edit the application, save and
try to run it I get a page cannot be found error...
The URL is
which IS IN the bin folder.
What the hell..... somebody please help me with this. I would
love to actually start learning and coding flex, but for the life
of me I can't figure out these paths and requirment to get the
project to run...
