At work, we deal a lot with loading modules residing on remote servers into our applications running locally. By locally I mean from a local path on our hard drives (the default Flex Builder run/debug settings), not on a local web server instance (localhost). Depending on what type of module we are loading, we would normally use one of Flex’s built-in functions to load modules:
// Loading a language resource module: resourceManager.loadResourceModule('http://aaronhardy.com/en_US_ResourceModule.swf'); // Loading a style module (e.g., a compiled font swf): StyleManager.loadStyleDeclarations("http://aaronhardy.com/fonts/Astroid.swf"); // Loading miscellaneous modules: var moduleInfo:IModuleInfo = ModuleManager.getModule('http://aaronhardy.com/MyModule.swf'); moduleInfo.load();
But these methods of importing modules result in errors like the following:
Unable to load resource module from http://aaronhardy.com/en_US_ResourceModule.swf Error: Unable to load style(SWF is not a loadable module): http://aaronhardy.com/fonts/Astroid.swf.
