Developer Component: Communication App Inspector

When you are ready to tackle server-side scripting, the Communication Server's App Inspector will be your new best friend. The App Inspector is a view into the server from within the Flash authoring environment. It is one of the three tools you can use when you are debugging. The App Inspector operates similarly to the Flash MX Output window displaying compiler errors and trace activity at runtime. It also lets you monitor SharedObject connections and streams being sent or received. You need this tool to recompile (reload) your application when changes are made to the main.asc file.

If you had Flash MX installed on your computer before you installed the Flash Communication Server, you are ready to open the Inspector. If you are working on Mac OS, or on a computer that is remote from the server, you will have to install the Inspector manually. Please refer to Chapter 1, “STEP 1: Installation and Setup,” to learn how to install it manually. You can also access the Inspector from within the Communication Server Administration Console.
