So i have ColdFusion 7.02 on our dev server and I have Flex Builder on my pc.  I am trying to get my Flex app to talk with some CFCs on the dev server.  I created a new project and selected a ColdFusion Flash Remoting project
the root folder I have
Z:\JRun4\servers\cfusion\cfusion-ear\cfusion-war\
where z:\ is the dev server
the root url I have the url that is used to get to one of that severs web page http://devserver.mydomain.com

so i create the project in z:\inetpub\wwwroot\devserver.mydomain.com\flexTest

when i try to access a cfc it says it cannot be found
the html file Flex builder created is in z:\inetpub\wwwroot\devserver.mydomain.com\flexTest\bin

this is my remote object code
<mx:RemoteObject id="entities_ro" destination="ColdFusion" source="logon_root.flexTest.cfcs.entityGateway">
            <mx:method name="getEntities" result="handleRO(event)" />
      </mx:RemoteObject>

logon_root is a coldfusion mapping set to
z:\inetpub\wwwroot\devserver.mydomain.com\

The source of the remoteobect can't be a local filesystem, it needs to be a proper URL starting with http://

it isnt referenced as a local filesystem.  I have a mapping in CF called logon_root that points to z:\inetpub\wwwroot\devserver.mydomain.com\

The examples i have seen seem to reference the source of the remote object in a similar way

Basically the error is saying that it cant find "logon_root.flexTest.cfcs.entityGateway"; that's no suprise because if you type logon_root.flexTest.cfcs.entityGateway or z:\inetpub\wwwroot\devserver.mydomain.com\ into your web browser it will have no idea that you have a CF mapping on your server and it won't know where to go, you have to provide a direct web accesible url to the service because for all intents and purposes you could be calling a server anywhere in the world.
