The following is a typical process for developing and deploying a Flex application that uses the ColdFusion Data Service adapter and LiveCycle Data Services ES assembler to manage back-end database tasks:
- Design your application.
- Create the Flex application, in which you define a DataService component in MXML or ActionScript. The DataService component calls methods on a server-side Data Management Service destination to perform activities such as filling client-side data collections with data from remote data sources and synchronizing the client and server versions of data.
- Configure a destination for the ColdFusion Data Service adapter so that the Flex application to connect to the ColdFusion back-end application. For more information, see Configuring a destination for the Data Service Adapter.
Write your ColdFusion CFCs. For more information, see Writing the ColdFusion CFCs.
Note: To make creating the CFCs easier, ColdFusion includes wizards that you can use in Flash Builder. For more information, see Using the ColdFusion Extensions for Eclipse.
- Test your application by using Flex.
