    FDS configuration on JBOSS

    .mike.
      Hi,

      I am trying to get FDS running on JBOSS but need help with the configuration. I initially had flex 2 running on tomcat which work perfectly fine for regular applications. For FDS applications, I downloaded JBOSS and tried running the samples that FDS includes (dashboard). The problem is it seems that when running any application (FDS or a regular app), it doesn't seem to compile the .mxml file into a .swf file and display it correctly. Instead, it just displays the .mxml code when i access it.

      Here's a break down of what I did. Keep in mind i'm new to JBOSS.

      1)Installed jboss-4.0.4
      2) took the flex.war file and extracted everything into the folder C:\jboss-4.0.4.GA\server\default\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat55.sar\ROOT.war\flex
      3)Followed steps as described in http://www.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/flex/2/install.html#jboss
      Put install_root/resources/security/tomcat/flex-tomcat-common.jar and install_root/resources/security/tomcat/flex-tomcat-server.jar in the jboss_root/server/default/lib folder.
      Copy install_root/resources/security/tomcat/context.xml to your web application under the WEB-INF
      Start JBoss.

      Flex Data Services welcome screen displays fine when accessing http://localhost:8080/flex/

      At this point, I'm just trying to get regular flex 2 applications to run correctly on JBoss. Are there any other configurations that I must do in order to get JBOSS to compile the mxml files into .swf files and display it correctly? I don't seem to have this problem when using Tomcat or Resin.

      Thanks,

      Mike
