Our situation is that we have a number of flex developers
creating flex components which interact with webservices.
We have created facade classes over the webservice
invocations that inject things such as the currently authenticated
users credentials, webservice endpoint urls, etc.
During development, I would prefer for our facade classes to
not actually invoke the webservice but rather just load xml locally
so that the developer has a more simplified development experience.
I am having trouble finding out how to load XML from disk
(for example: c:\sourc repo\data.xml), is this possible? Since
Flash runs in a sandbox I assume not, but what workarounds are
there? Any other suggestions?
