Configuring RDS in Flash Builder
- Start Flash Builder.

Windows: Help > Preferences
Mac: Flash Builder > Preferences
- Navigate to Adobe > RDS Configuration in the left-hand tree.
- Select the LCDS (localhost) RDS Server under Currently Configured RDS Servers.
- Change the context root to be lcds-samples or whatever web app you are using.
- Click the Test Connection button. If RDS is set up correctly, you should see a dialog that says "Test connection was successful".
- The fiber.swc file in LiveCycle Data Services 3.1 is incompatible with Modeler 3.11.
By default, new Flex projects for LiveCycle Data Services in Flash Builder use the fiber.swc file in the WEB-INF\flex\libs directory of the target web application. This version of the fiber.swc file is missing a new method that is required for ActionScript code generation when working with Modeler 3.11. This version of the fiber.swc file is missing a new method that is required for using the model-driven form. When you try to use the model-driven form in an application, you will get an error that contains the following text:
Method marked override must override another method.
To work around this issue, replace the the fiber.swc file in the WEB-INF\flex\libs directory with a copy of the fiber.swc file from the FB_INSTALL_DIR\eclipse\plugins\com.adobe.flexbuilder.project_220.127.116.118971\fiberSwcs\4.5\l ibs directory.
- Deploying a model that contains one of the following objects results in an XML parsing error from the LiveCycle Data Services server, and the model cannot be deployed:
- A service that contains a function with parameters (arguments); this includes a service generated from an introspected remoting destination
- An entity that contains a method with parameters
