I've got a Flex application that I'd like to deploy as a
webpage. It works when I run it from Flex Builder, however, when I
deploy it on the Tomcat server on my machine, parts of it break.
The part that breaks is one of my buttons which uses HTTPService to
perform a Rest Post to another web service and fill a variable with
the result. It doesn't work on the deployed version and I can't
figure out why.
In order to deploy, I clicked the 'Export Release Button' and
then copied everything in the release folder to my tomcat folder. I
then navigate to the html page, and most of it works, just not the
part using HTTPService. Do I need to copy additional files or set
some security options? Thanks for any help, I'm almost done with
this first application.
Managed to resolve the issue. The problem was with not having
a crossdomain.xml which allows Flex to access and receive data from
other domains. To fix the problem I simply created a
crossdomain.xml (whose format can be found online easily enough)
and put it in the ROOT webapp folder of my tomcat directory.
