This is my first time using flex to connect to coldfusion.
I've got the following configuration:
1) Development XP with Flex 3/Adobe CS3
2) Linux webserver running coldfusion 8/MySQL
Up until this point, I have been doing my development on the
XP box and sending my code to the linux server through RDS.
I've got RDS configured on the Flex 3 environment and that
seems to be working ok.
However, when I tried to do file->new>flex project and
set the application server type to Coldfusion I run into problems.
On the second page I have standalone or deployed to J2EE
The next line is "Use default location for local Coldfusion
server" which I deselect (I'm not sure what the default location
really is though...) and set the location to the path
/opt/coldfusion8 which is mapped via samba to z:\coldfusion
Next is the "use built-in coldfusion server". Does this mean
that there is a coldfusion server installed as part of the flex 3
environment?? Anyway, I deselected this option and used the path
z:\wwwroot\WEB-INF\flex but it still asks for the flex-config.xml
which is in that directory and I can browse to it just fine. I'm
not sure what they are asking for on the root URL, I assume where
the actual code will be stored which I have yet another mapping for
that one which is y:\testcf.
