Debuging Flex remoting to ColdFusion

Submitted by Falken on Thu, 07/27/2006 - 12:15
Apparently nowhere else is this mentioned, but if you get errors from Flex 2 applications saying :

[MessagingError message='Unknown destination 'ColdFusion'.']' faultDetail:'Couldn't establish a connection to 'ColdFusion'

One of the first things you might try is opening up the services-config.xml you compiled against, and finding the part of the channel definition that says:


and setting actual name, port and context root values there. Then recompile and try again.

Install Flex2 Charting with the SDK on Linux

As the Adobe doc's are a bit thin on the ground here, this is how to install the optional Charting stuff into a local install of the Flex 2 SDK.
  1. Download and unzip the Charting stuff from http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=flex. You want the 16 meg 'Windows' one. Ignore that :-)
  2. Run the installer from the command line and answer the question (where is the SDK) when it asks you: java -jar /tmp/Flex\ Charting/flex_charting_2_installer.jar
  3. ...
  4. Profit !
