Easiest setup for local testing of HTTPService

I have written a simple webapp and am running it on
http://localhost:8080/myApp
and I'm using an HTTPService to retrieve information:





var httpService:HTTPService = new HTTPService();

httpService.addEventListener(ResultEvent.RESULT,
httpResult);

httpService.addEventListener(FaultEvent.FAULT, httpFault);

httpService.url = "
http://localhost:8080/myApp";

httpService.resultFormat = "xml";

httpService.send();





I compile the swf, and then open the swf file in my browser
with the url:



file:///home/me/workspace/myFlexApp/myFlexApp.swf



I get a "Security error accessing url", since I am going
"across domains". I tried using file://localhost/home... but that
did not help.



I'm wondering what is the easiest way to get this working?
Since this is primarily just for testing the SWF during
development, I didn't want to have to create a crossdomain.xml or
have to copy the swf file to the test webservers root, or setup a
proxy.



I'm hoping there might be some "disable security" feature I
could set in my flash player or during compilation of the swf file
that would allow this to work without extra overhead.



Thanks,

John.



PS. I see there is a message that says: "Please use "Attach
Code" to include any sample code in the message". I'm uding FF3,
and I couldn't find ant "Attach Code" option
