    Working with data services on remote server (not just deploying)

    Aron manager

      Hi!,

       

      Is this possible? I'm used to work directly agains remote servers, but it seems flash builder 4 data services doesn't like it in development phase.

       

      I know I can deploy my services to a remote server for production, but want to do the same in development phase, work against remote data service. Could anyone suguest any tip?

       

      Thanks in advance,

          Hello HexDump;

           

          If I understand your question correctly - you are trying to connect to a remote server to use its data during development.  What type of data are you working with and how do you connect to it?

           

          For example if you are using php/mySQL on your remote server and you are using data services and a callresponder, you can put in the endpoint in your service (see below example). *This might change in newer revisions.

           

           

          <fx:Declarations>

           

          <users:Users id="users" destination="users" endpoint="http://www.yourdomain.com/gateway.php"

          fault="Alert.show(event.fault.faultString)" showBusyCursor="true" source="users"/>

          <s:CallResponder id="loginUserResult"/>

          </fx:Declarations>

            Hi,

             

            First of all thanks for the answer.

             

            What I wanted to mean is that I have saw a lot of tuts about using data services having mysql and php services in localhost.

             

            This is not what I want, I want during development work on remote host too. I like to create my data services directly on remote server, etc... Because I don't wnat to come across surprises when deploying local code/services on remote server.

             

            Reading some tuts, I have seen people saying that if you copy local services, etc... keeping the same folder structure on remote server everything will work ok, but I prefer to work directly against remote server. Create Data services on remote server and allways quering the service in the remote server. Don't wnat to use localhost for anything.

             

            I hope now I have been more clearer.

             

            Thanks in advance,

            HexDump.

              Hello HexDump;

               

              I now understand what your trying to accomplish.  Sorry if I'm repeating myself, but this is what I do in that situation (I found this to be the easiest solution).

               

              In development when I want to use my php/sql on the production(remote) server, I start off with a copy of my prod. servers php  (I do not use FB's generated sample php code) and sql (at least the sql's database structure and a little data) local so that when I create a new php connection FB sets up everything for me.  Then when I want to use my production servers php/sql in development I set my services endpoint to that server in my app/module/component.
