Debugging Techniques

As you may have noticed already, server-side ActionScript is difficult to debug. Macromedia Dreamweaver MX does not include an ActionScript interpreter like the Flash ActionScript Editor. Although it has code hinting for SSAS, it does not have the handy Code Format (or Code Cleanup) control that Flash MX has.

Testing SSAS is tricky because you may need a number of elements in place, such as multiple Flash players, Flash Remoting MX Servers, and database servers. You have to watch Flash ActionScript using Flash MX, and watch server ActionScript using the App Inspector. Trace activity happens in the App Inspector, which is a great tool; however, it requires some tricky multitasking to place it in your workflow.
