I have FlexBuilder 2 installed on my local machine. My
project, however, is accessed via a mapped drive to our development
server (and yes, we have MX 7.0.2 installed).
All of the examples I see seem to assume that CF server is
installed locally -- but, of course in this instance it is not.
When creating the CF project, I am assuming that I have to some
make connection to the remote server, so it doesn't make sense to
browse to the config file on my mapped driver (where I get the
Invalid root error anyway).
I am tearing my hair out. I can't even do the easy-peasy
Hello World example that uses a cfc to return the string via
mx:remoteobject (remote connection errors). I have gotten to
Chapter 17 of the Flex 2: Training from the source and have bombed
in returning cfc data as the book, again, assumes a local
installation of cfserver (Server.Error.Request:HTTP request error),
and I have attempted another example that creates an xml doc (using
cfxml) on the fly.
So -- either I am an idiot, or there is some huge gap in the
documentation somewhere. Is the assumption that all Flex
development will occur locally (which would require the
installation of a cf server on the local machine (if using a cf
back end)? Or, are are we supposed to somehow use RDS to connect to
a remote development server running cf? I have a successful RDS
connection to the development server, but that does not seem to do
