IntelliJ + Flex Remote Debug?

Hi,

I have a situation where I need to remote debug a Flex application.  Can I do this using IntelliJ?  I haven't seen any articles / tutorials on this(I've been digging around).  I hope so -- am not looking to going back to Flex Builder!

Thanks

- create new Flex run configuration (Run | Edit Configurations | [+] button | Flex), give it some reasonable name
- check 'Debug already running Flash player' radio button
- uncheck 'Make before launch' check box as useless
- press OK and launch it (Shift+F9)
- IDEA gets waiting for Flash player to connect. Right-click a running Flash player, select 'Debugger' from context menu.

I tried this, as the only difference is the SWF URL from local to remote. However I always get File Not Found. Is this normal?

In fact there's a difference, from path you have to fill URL. Since in Flash Builder its the same I didn't even looked down.

Vitor, are you sure you write comments in a correct thread? I'm afraid I don't see relation between your comment and Flash remote debug.

Reading the original post again, I think so.
I was also trying to debug-run a Flex application from a remote environment with Intellij.

I was just stating that my error was trying to use an URL on the path field which won't work. I've figured it out and just placed the URL in the correct place.
My error was motivated by the fact that in Flash Builder one field is used for local path's or URL's and being so used to it, I imagined the error was something else.

But yes, my problem was debbuging an application in a remote environment.

Thanks for the help.
