Developing with FAME (Flashout, ASDT, MTASC, Eclipse) works really nice. When I was working on a remoting application with AMFPHP I missed the NetConnection Debugger which had to run in a seperate window in a Flashplayer.
Christopher Allen from the MTASC mailinglist gave me a hint, that the PHPEclipse-plugin has an integrated Webbrowser.
After a bit of research I saw that not the complete plugin is needed for the integrated NetConnection Debugger. You only have to copy the plugin “net.sourceforge.phpeclipse.webbrowser_1.1.3” into the Eclipse plugin directory. An overview about the PHPEclipse modules can be found here.
In Eclipse do the following: Window->Show View->Other->PHPEclipse Web Development->PHP Browser. Point the browser to the “NetConnection Debugger.swf” and that’s it.
The “NetConnection Debugger.swf” comes with the AS 1.0 Remoting Components. After installation you find the swf here: Documents & Settings\[USER]\Local Settings\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash MX 2004\en\Configuration\WindowsSWF.
You can also copy the “Service Browser.swf” and use it within Eclipse.
