Consuming web services in Macromedia Flash using Macromedia ColdFusion MX

In this tutorial, you will learn how to invoke and return results from web services in a Macromedia Flash movie using ColdFusion MX. Using the Flash Remoting service in ColdFusion MX, you can interact with web services directly from your Macromedia Flash movies like any other remote service in Macromedia Flash Remoting. Moreover, you do not need to build a single ColdFusion page or component.

To build Macromedia Flash movies that interact with web services using ColdFusion, you must have the Macromedia Flash MX authoring environment and ColdFusion MX installed. The Flash Remoting service is a feature of ColdFusion MX and does not require an additional installation.

In addition, you must install the Macromedia Flash Remoting Components for the Macromedia Flash MX authoring environment, which consist of the necessary ActionScript classes, NetConnection Debugger, Services Browser, and documentation. To download the Macromedia Flash Remoting Components, visit the Macromedia Flash Remoting Support Center on the Macromedia web site.
