Subject Re: Issue with Apache 2.2.3, Tomcat 6.0.29, and Flex
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 12:38:47 GMT
Hi Michael,

did you verify that your flex app is sending something when you hit the
login button? (e.g. using wireshark)

As you referring to a "compiled flex application", I am somewhat tempted to
assume that you didn't write it on your own (?)

--> Do you have a flash *debug* player installed? Otherwise, you won't see
any errors, which are thrown by the flash app (and not handled).
