In Flex3 I used the ColdFusion/Flex application wizard to generate the data connection and create a basic Flex project from which I then developed my application (See adobe TV episode by Ben Forta on "Build a ColdFusion-Powered Flex App" 05/28/2008.). I have upgraded to Flash Builder and ColdFusion builder and cannot find anything that comes close to the wizard in Flex 3. Have I installed the apps incorrectly or was this wizard completely removed from the new apps. If this is the case do I now need to do this manually or ? or go back to flex 3?
Thanks in advance for your help.
From the Video, I gather that you would like to have ORM Code generator on the ColdFusion side and Autogenerate Forms and Data Grids on the front end.
There is no Wizard for Cold Fusion/ Flex in Flash Builder 4. However the above features are now available separately.

Data Centric Development helps you to create the client side forms without writing any code. Here is a useful article
Hope this helps.
I refer you to this thread, http://forums.adobe.com/message/2830643#2830643, where the questions about these wizards are answered.
There is a wizard that creates an AS class from a CFC, but watch it! I had all kinds of problems because, in the generated AS class, the capitalization of one variable name somehow got changed.
The CodlFusion Extensions for FlexBuilder 3 work better; you may want to keep that part of Flex Builder 3 for a while. I tried installing those extensions in Flash Builder (before I installed CF Builder), but it would not let me.
