10 years, 8 months ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off

For my memory and your pleasure I’ve setup a fully functional example as starting point for a FLEX-CMS generator project.

I’d like to post it for all those have problems setting up a remoting client in flex using Zend AMF as application gateway.

This tutorial requires advanced skills in FLEX / AIR, and basic knowledge of what you are doing. as no comments appear in code. For those who are starting up this kind of project will help a lot as structure reference.

Your xampp home page is in http://localhost/xampp/
Your mysql instance accepts root as username and no pwd

Go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ and run the SQL Script in test.sql in order to create database and table

Unzip the project into your htdocs/zendexample folder

Setup a new project in Flex Builder 3 named zendexample, pointing to folder
