Flex on Mixx

June 26th, 2008 by enefekt

There are so many online communities out there already, but I was curious when Mixx debuted their “Communities”.
Figured I would create a community just for Flex. I don’t know if there is enough value in a mini Digg-like community just for Flex developers and designers, but I guess we can find out … introducing:

flex.mixx.com

It is open registration for members, so if you think it might be cool, join up!

Updated Flash Player 9.0.124.0 Security Gotcha

June 5th, 2008 by enefekt

Just got done spending my afternoon tracking this one down. Had a Flash app on one domain, calling some web services from another.

The crossdomain.xml policy file worked perfectly fine up until 9.0.124.0 (Which BTW gets automatically installed with the Mac OS 10.5.3 update), then stopped working.

Started getting the:

Request for resource at (url) by requestor from (url) is denied due to lack of policy file permissions.

Set up the policy logging, and found out the WSDLs were being loaded just fine, but everything failed when it came to actually calling a service.

Pored over the security article on Adobe’s site. Couldn’t find anything.
Finally ended up stumbling on this TechNote, which solved the problem for me.
After finding the problem, also saw the section in the Flash Player 9 Security PDF.

What was needed?

allow-http-request-headers-from

Needed to allow the SOAP headers.

Hopefully this might help someone else.

Flash Player on 3G iPhone?

June 5th, 2008 by enefekt

Here we go again. Via MacRumors, Apple has filed a patent application that seems to cover some of the rumored features for the next 3G iPhone on the 2.0 software.

The interesting bit is what the application says about our very own beloved Flash Player:

“In some embodiments, the content can be played with a QuickTime, Windows Media, or Flash plugin”

So will this be in the distant future, or on Monday? :)
