I have quite an interesting issue. I created a file upload
procedure using the FileReference class. Everything works fine
until I upload the app onto the STAGING server. A server-side app
called dotDefender is installed on the STAGING server. This tool
helps prevent sql injection attacks (and other hacking attempts).
The problem is that it seems as though dotDefender is blocking the
request (to the upload CFM script) from the Flex app which is being
served from the same server.
So I thought of using a RemoteObject and the ByteArray
classes to upload the image bitmap data. The Flex app can take a
snapshot of the Canvas that contains the Image control. the problem
is that I can see no way of allowing the user to Browse their local
machine for an image and display that image in the Flex app WITHOUT
having to send FIRST the image data to the server.
Does anyone know of any alternative for uploading images onto
a CF server?
Are there any additional parameters that I can use that would
prevent dotDefender from rejecting the Flex apps request (using the
FileReference upload() method)??
Note: I have no control over the configuration of the
