Adobe TV Step-By-Step ColdFusion Powered Flex

Adobe TV has posted a recording I did on building ColdFusion powered Flex applications. The video, entitled Building Flex Applications Powered By ColdFusion, is one of the longer Adobe TV sessions, and walks through the concepts, building the CFC back-end, coding the Flex client, retrieving data, working with results, events, passing data back to the server, and even working with renderers. The example built uses the standard ColdFusion 8 example databases (so if you have CF8 you have everything you need to be able to follow along), and uses both Flex Builder and Dreamweaver for the actual coding.

    Thanks. There is some interesting code at the following website which allows any component to be allowed to be drag/drop and stretched. Adobe should incorporate this type of code in Flex 4.

    Very nice presentation!!!! Although, I did notice that you didn’t use a <cfqueryparam> in your getArt <cfquery>. 😉

    Ouch! 🙂
    Although, the argument in the CFC method is defined as numeric, so anything appended would not be accepted anyway! <whew>

    Looks like your this video is down – can you repost it here or have the fine folks at Adobe correct it? I’d love to share this with my team – primarily CF and Java Developers – this looks like a nice first step to using Flex for some of our tools.

    Looks like the URLs changed when they rolled out the updated Adobe TV. I’ve fixed the link. Thanks for letting me know.
