What you are describing aren't step 7 in the tutorial, it's step 1 -> Setup for coldfusion -> 7
And that seems to be a coldfusion problem, so please keep you problem there
Thanks for the unhelpful reply
I was following a FLEX tutorial and it would seem reasonable to post a query in the FLEX forum
Are you saying that novices should identify specific elements of a tutorial to post in a correct forum?
This tutorial covers both FLEX and Cold Fusion. The Coldfusion experts do not necessarily have FLEX experience either (And they predicted you would say this).
If anyone has followed this tutorial and can shed any light on this error message I would be most obliged. (Previous respondents need not apply)
Despite your impolite sarcastic answer, I have actually tried downloading the file you wrote about.
I don't have any experience with Coldfusion and I still feel pretty confident it's a Coldfusion error.
But if you read the fault, it actually gets a hold of the server, and it looks like it's unable to find the Database "testdrive_db".
Try and look if it's placed and configured correctly.
Thanks for replying.
I am sorry that you thought my reply impolite and sarcastic. It wasn't meant to be, it was meant to be plain anger
I appreciate that you do not have ColdFusion experience, you and me both. I am trying to set up a workflow from Photoshop/Panini/Burrito/Android and was therefore excited to find the tutorial:
Flex Test Drive for Mobile: Build a mobile application in an hour
It has highlighted the fact that I am temporally challenged as I have been on it for days.
I mentioned that I had posted this query in the ColdFusion forum and some help has been given and is ongoing.
The fact that this tut straddles two pieces of software is likely to mean posting in the correct place will be tricky.
Thank you for your patience.
I would have thought that as mobiles appear to be the future, there would be quite a few Flex developers who have already managed this. Because it is new, it means there is less information about, I guess.
I think my configuration is probably awry. I just need to figure out how.

Are there any other serverside technologies you have experience with .Net, Python, PHP?
Well I think a lot of people are doing mobile with AIR now, but it's not really a mobile specific problem you have.
But if you have experience with other serverside technologies then maybe you could shift to that as you backend?
So you don't have to battle 2 unknowns.
Thanks for replying
Yes, I have carried on with the tutorial and it uses PHP so I plumped for that.
I have got as far as running the flex program and got a virtual HTC Desire on screen!
i have never had so much fun pressing two buttons that don't do anything!
Now to see if I can follow it and get data invloved.
I think I will take your advice and leave CF for the moment. One unknown at a time is plenty.
Thanks for your help.
If I get stuck again, I'll open a new thread.
Great you just do that.
