Hi folks - Maybe somebody can set me straight. I'm wanting to
use the remoting feature of Flex Data Services so I can communicate
from my Flex client and my server logic via the binary AMF protocol
because it seems to be faster and more robut than web services. I
have installed FDS on my tomcat server. I've also written a simple
Java class as a test that returns the current time via a public
method. Should I be packaging this class up as it's own web
application or should I be deploying this into the FDS (flex.war)
application? And if it's the latter, where do I put the file? And
then of course, how do I reference it on the client?
I see a lot of docs talk about installing the FDS web app but
I don't see them talk about integrating your own code with it. This
confuses me because why would you install and use FDS if you
weren't integrating it with any of your own code? What's the point
of the server in that case?
Anyway, I'm obviously missing something here. Would somebody
be kind enough to clear this up for me?
