Run the wizard, select ColdFusion as the server technology, but don't check the option to use remote object access service. Then, open the project properties dialog, go to the Flex Compiler page, and add a the compiler flag: -services "C:\ColdFusion8\wwwroot\WEB-INF\flex\services-config.xml" (obviously changing the path as appropriate). This flag is what gets set by the wizard when you opt to use Flash Remoting. -http://www.feed-squirrel.com/index.cfm?evt=viewItem&ID=77732
Above is a work-around/solution that was successful for me. Below are screen shots of how I initially configured the project, following the above solution.
In the image above, notice how I didn't tick the "Use remote object access service" checkbox.
For the image below, the 'Y:\' value is a mapped network directory to my server (IIS) webroot, which is "\\windowsserver/Inetpub/wwwroot/". Root URL is the name of my server. Fill in the fields with correct values and hit finish.
Then navigate ( Project>Properties>Flex Compiler ) to this project's 'Flex Compiler context menu.
And 'W:\' is another mapped network directory that points obviously to my Coldfusion's WEB-INF\flex.
I hope that this helps. As you may see, I'm hoping that this will help you and others that are likely to come across problem.
Thanks! Helped a great deal.. couldn't get the flex-CF connectivty
This should be in the docs
Hey I am glad it has helped!
Thought this link might be helpful to anybody deploying to JBoss, trying to get a simple app working, and facing the same issue. Check out:
Be careful to uncheck the wizard options that he shows to be unchecked in his print screens, or else you won't get the same screens that he does. His directions worked for me using Ubuntu 9.10, jboss 5.1.0, flexbuilder for linux.
