Using this site with Adobe Flex or the Flex API

  • Adobe Flex requires our servers have a crossdomain.xml file indicating those domains that can access our data using Adobe Flex. With this release, we are publishing a crossdomain.xml file. However, there are possible security issues with allowing potentially untrustworthy Flex applications to be run from any domain. Thus, we are adding domains approved to use Adobe Flex on this site on a case by case basis. If you need to access the service using Adobe Flex or the Flex API, please contact us and indicate the domain(s) of the computers that will access the service using Adobe Flex.
