I have been attempting to connect a Flex4 List to an HTTP service with no luck whatsoever. Are there any tutorials for this? Is this even working? Flex Builder 4 did a fantastic job of auto-discovering my XML data and presenting me type options for the data, but a truly horrible job of letting me know what it was doing with that information.
This seems to be partly a problem of excessive MXML dependency. After 10 hours of chasing rabbit trails, I still have not been able to stick a debugger on anything that would help me to understand what is going wrong. Looks like it's back to HTTPService and E4X :S
I finally figured out what was wrong... the automically generated dataProvider was set to the parent object of the object that it should have been. So, after that and ditching the spark BitmapImage for the Halo Image (b.c. of its auto URL capabilities) I was in business. I definitely still vote for greater developer visibility into the whole magical world of data services.
I am glad that you could eventually get this to work.
There are tutorials on HTTP/Web service connection through DCD in this blog that might help.
