Assuming you know the basics of your app server, including
how to deploy a WAR file...



The Flex Installation page has WAR deployment instructions on



FDS
J2EE deployment




Also, there is a tutorial lesson on the Flex Data Management
Service in the
Getting
Started with Flex 2
book.

Thank you 🙂

But that was my problem.. I did'nt now how to deply a WAR
file cause I'm new on server-side of Flex. I found some articles
about how to deploy that into JRun. If anybody knows something that
can help me.. please say! 🙂

If you're new to the server-side, it's probably best to
install FDS using the Integrated JRun option. Then you don't have
to worry about WAR deployment.



Once you've done that, start the JRun server, open a browser
to
http://localhost:8700/samples/index.htm,
and poke around the MXML, ActionScript, and Java files.



Then, read the first 5 chapters of
Getting
Started with Flex 2
and the
Data
Access and Interconnectivity
chapters of the Flex 2 Developer's
Guide.



That should get you going.

Thanks, I'm considering all your tips

But what do you mean by that???



I got a WAR file from the URL the other guy sent to me and
just placed it into my JRun folder along with the other WARs that
come up with this software and tried to access this by typing it in
the browser and it didnt work, although the other original WARs
worked fine. There might be some configuration required for
that...

OK. Just to confirm:

* You downloaded the war file from coenrats.org.

* You expanded the compressed war file into the
fds_root/jrun4/servers/default directory, as described in the FDS
J2EE deployment instructions.

* You started the JRun default server by opening a command
window to fds_root/jrun4/bin and typing
jrun start default

* You opened a browser to
http://localhost:8700/testdrive/index.htm



What error are you getting when you open the index.htm
file?

Hum.. actually I didnt read FDS J2EE deployment instructions,
I got several things to read so I just run my eyes over it and end
up missing things. It works fine now. Thanks, sorry to bother
you.
