LiveJournal Client Discussions
I'm trying to create an LJ client in Flash, and I'm hitting a small problem due to the security model of the Flash Player.|
For Flash to load data from a different domain to the one that hosts the compiled swf file, a crossdomain.xml file needs to be placed on the server with the data, in this case www.livejournal.com. There's no way around that - its basically Flash's way of stopping cross site scripting.
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<allow-access-from domain="www.company.com" />
I need this file on a server to continue work. In the short term, is there a test site that could have this file placed on it. In the long term, what is the likelihood that I can get this file deployed onto the live livejournal.com website?

 I'm actually using Macromedia Flex, but its the same thing once compiled.
