ServerSide ActionScript

I have gotten a couple of questions about support for Server Side ActionScript in ColdFusion MX.


  • Server Side ActionScript allows you to write server side code in ActionScript / ECMA script (it uses the Rhino parser).

  • You can only call this code from Flash MX via Flash remoting (you can’t use it like ASP or CFML).

  • There are some built in objects specific to ColdFusion available in the CF object.

I have posted an addendum to my:
Getting Started with ColdFusion MX and Flash Remoting article
that uses ServerSide ActionScript instead of a ColdFusion component.
You can view it here.
