The difference between an AIR application and a browser application is very small. Take a look at the Adobe training video on this subject.
In particular, the last part of day three. It's quite clear and you can download the test setup for free. Be careful! I believe that the Flex Builder configuration info is out of date, because the paths for installation of LCDS have changed. I found a fix.
My notes, maybe a bit cryptic:
Make sure when you install LCDS, choose the Tomcat option. This will install the server application.
If you're using the new version LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6, you'll have to adjust a few things:
When you install LCDS, click the Tomcat option and continue with the installation.
Instead of unzipping to C:\lcds\jrun4\servers\default.. use this folder to unzip the server.zip file instead to
Original adobe forum post:
Also, instead of using port 8700, the new version uses 8400.
1. Start the Server: Programs > LiveCycle Data Services ES 2.6 > Start LiveCycle Data Services Server. Allow the server to start up.
2. Point your browser to http://localhost:8400/ to test the start page.
3. Your URL for this example will be http://localhost:8400/odt/
I found that in many places you cannot use $(ENV_VARIABLE) successfully.
Enter the exact string.
c:/lcds/tomcat/webapps/odt - for the training apps
Always, instead of /lcds/jrun4/servers/default/odt, use /lcds/tomcat/webapps/odt
Start the data base
LCDS local URL
He knew what he was talking about. Thanks to rsadwick.
The basic answer is no.
AIR provides "local system access" that is forbidden ...a security violation if tried from the internet as a web application. This is a good thing too for many would use it to write malicious web sites; the kind that could really bite!
