I am curious if i can connect to remote cfc, hosted on the server other then localhost through FB4? For example i have some cfc which are displaying some data from a remote DB. I'd like to have my Flash Builder project to be connected to the ColdFusion server on my shared hosting and display an actual data from there,or at least to be able to connect to a cfc on the same server through Data Panel. Is this doable? How i can configure my project to access remote CF server.
Thanks in advance.
Yes , you can. I'm not sure how to use the Flashbuilder4 data-services thing to connect to the remote services. But you have to make sure your remote cfc enviroment has a crossdomain.xml file. I always forget to have one of those and I spend more time than necessary bug-hunting.
Also, make sure any methods of the CFC that you intend to call have their access = "remote".
Thanks for answers, i know how to connect programmatically, through RemoteObject, i was curious if i can do that via Data Panel. I was unable to find how to connect to remote CF server, during project configuration.
