Bringing the ColdFusion based Connect facade to Flex

As you may know last month I built the beginnings of a ColdFusion based facade for making using the Connect XML APIs simpler to use via ColdFusion. Since building the initial facade I haven’t managed to progress the core CFC a great deal, but this month I decided to focus on demonstrating how using the ConnectFacade.cfc to quickly bring Connect based content into their own flex based applications.
Here is a very simple example of using the Flex datagrid control and binding that to the ConnectFacade.cfc as a RemoteObject. This is a step towards the end goal of taking Connect content offline using LiveCycle Data Services
Here is the code sample

And the resulting Flex application

Let me know if you have any questions. Next month I’ll migrate to using LiveCycle Data Services to access the Connect content.
