I've been developing a project on Windows that has been
running fine, both when run from Flex builder or when deployed on a
web server. I just installed the Mac OS X beta, and was unable to
run the same project from Flex Builder on the Mac. The problem is
that an httpService that uses a relative url
(url="assets/config.xml") causes a fault. (#2148: etc., etc....
Only local-with-filesystem and trusted local SWF files may access
I thought perhaps it was a bug on the Mac version, but then
realised I didn't really understand why it was working on Windows.
When run from Flex Builder, the relative url is a local file. But I
just assumed that Flex Builder was emulating the behavior of a web
server, and so it behaved as it would when deployed on a server.
After getting the error on the Mac, I'm now not so sure my
assumption is correct.
Can someone confirm what should happen in this case, or
whether there is a setting in Flex Builder to change the behavior?
(I'm pretty sure I didn't change any settings in Windows.)
