I'm fairly new to Flex. In the past I've created Flash
applications that have used Flash Remoting to connect to ColdFusion
MX and I've consumed .Net objects using Adobe's Flash Remoting.Net
add-on. I need to build a Flex app to connect to either ColdFusion
MX (Version: 6,1,0,63958) or our existing Flash remoting .Net.
All of the resources I've found talk about using CF MX 7.0.2.
We don't have that version, and we're not going to be able to
purchase it. When I attempt to call a method using the below syntax
against Flash Remoting.Net, nothing happens.
and calling metricsCFC.GetMetricsData() produces the
following error: details (String):
flashgateway.io.UnknownTypeException: Unknown object type tag (17)
Again, both of these server-side methods are currently
working fine in Flash 8 apps using Flash Remoting, so there are no
issues with the server-side code or crossdomain.xml files.
Can someone tell me a) if it's possible to use Flex's
RemoteObject to call a CFC against CFMX 6.1 or Flash Remoting.Net,
and if so, b) where a good resource would be to find example code,
etc? I realize I can consume my CFC by calling it as a WebService,
but I'd much prefer to use Flash Remoting instead.
