10. Calling Web Services from Flash Remo... > 10.3. Web Services from a ColdFusion...

Web Services from a ColdFusion Server

When the server environment for web services is ColdFusion MX, you don’t have to do anything on the server side to consume a web service. The Flash movie merely has to reference the Flash Remoting adapter on the server. The ColdFusion MX Server contains the necessary SOAP translation requirements and creates a proxy for the web service. The Flash Remoting gateway translates the SOAP reply from the proxy into the ActionScript objects that Flash will understand.

Warning

As of ColdFusion Updater 3, web services are not enabled by default in ColdFusion MX. This is for security reason; a malicious user can hijack a Flash Remoting gateway to call web services. To enable the web services, the web.xml file in the ColdFusion MX installation needs to be changed. Read the Updater 3 release notes at http://www.macromedia.com/support/coldfusion/releasenotes/mx/releasenotes_mx_updater01.html for more information.
