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.
