Primarily because I cannot seem to understand the CF Root Folder / Webroot / Root URL for a non-localhost setup (ie //DevServer/ColdFusion8/wwwroot along with http://testingIP:8500/projname???????) I have taken to using the endpoint property in RemoteObject as follows:
What is the downside of this??? I assume if the CF-Flex settings are set "properly" then flex uses those to set the "endpoint" so in theory the benefit would be not having to enter endpoint in each time (in which case I actually prefer the verbiosity of the above method) but is there any other reason/benefit to either not using the endpoint OR to setting up the CF-Flex link??
If you have access to your deployment server you can use the Flex compiler
settings if you don't then the best option will be to use the endPoint,
there is no significant downside or upside on this. You can write a single
bindable var and in this one set the value for endPoint
