Issue

When using the Adobe Flash data provider with Adobe Flash Remoting in ColdFusion MX 7.0 and 7.0.1, data is returned to the Adobe Flash/Flex application as type MixedArray. Since this is the expected data type, the Adobe Flash data provider correctly displays the returned data. However, in CFMX 7.0.2 this same structure data is returned as type object. As a result, the Adobe Flash data provider is unable to display it correctly. This has been logged as bug 64641.

Reason

The version of Adobe Flash Remoting contained in ColdFusion MX 7.0.2 produced incompatibility issues when passing structures to Adobe Flash. This is corrected by using the latest version of Adobe Flash Remoting, provided below.

Solution

To install the latest flashremoting jar, follow the instructions in the appropriate section below.

ColdFusion MX 7.0.2 Server Configuration

  1. Stop ColdFusion server.
  2. Backup your existing flashgateway.jar file.
  3. Download flashgateway.zip and extract the new flashgateway.jar into the same directory, overwriting the previous flashgateway.jar.

  4. Restart ColdFusion.

For ColdFusion MX 7.0.2 Server configuration, the flashgateway.jar is located in the {coldfusion-home}\lib directory.

ColdFusion MX 7.0.2 Multi-server Configuration

  1. Stop ColdFusion server.
  2. Backup your existing flashgateway.jar file.
  3. Download flashgateway.zip and extract the new flashgateway.jar into the same directory, overwriting the previous flashgateway.jar.

  4. Restart ColdFusion server.

For the ColdFusion MX 7 Multi-server configuration, the flashgateway.jar is located at {Jrun-Home}/servers/cfusion/cfusion-ear/cfusion-war/WEB-INF/cfusion/lib.

This update should be applied to all new ColdFusion servers where flashgateway.jar will be located at {Jrun-Home}/servers/{Coldfusion-Server-Name}/cfusion-ear/cfusion-war/WEB-INF/cfusion/lib.
