Geoff from fullasagoog was kind enough to put a crossdomain policy file on his server which allows us to connect to his public webservice using the WebServiceConnector component in Flash MX 2004 Professional.

I did a quick example using the UI components and databinding, it's really quite cool ... you can whip up little apps like this in under five minutes. The example connects to the webservice, fills the ComboBox component with all blogs that fullasagoog aggregates and gives the description for the selected item. Nothing fancy to it, in fact the only line of code I needed to type was: myWebservice.trigger();
