We have an old flash app that uses the flex2gateway thing that was in cf9, we currently are migrating to cf2018 and not quite sure what to do to move this service.
has anybody delt with this before?
Thanks in advance for any insite.
I hate to be the guy to say it, but Flash is dying and soon browsers will no longer support it. I know, it's not what you want to hear. But your best course of action would be to replace it with something else. Modern browsers are becoming more and more advanced, and I'm sure there's another way to do what you are currently doing in Flash.

UPDATE: I did some looking around and found the following, which may be helpful.
Both contain ideas for how to move beyond Flash.
I just noticed that Flash will be 100% unsupported by the end of this year. Time is running out. I hope you can implement a replacement, quickly.

yes, I am aware, the app is being redeveloped but won't be ready till November and the server it lives on is about to be decommissioned, so I'm just trying to buy the dev team a few more months on this. and thanks for the links. ill see what I can do with them,

As this is going to be only temporary, I would just move it to ColdFusion 2018. ColdFusion is backward-compatible by nature. So most services, even deprecated ones, still stand a chance. They may continue to work or may do so after some tweaking.
In short, move it. Then we'll cross that bridge later.
