Do you have experience changing your application from CF8 and Flash/Flex to only CF? If so, how do you replace the Flash/Flex part? Any experiences to share?

You say little about how you apply Flash or Flex. But, chances are, Coldfusion is at the back-end and Flash/Flex is interacting with it to produce a presentation layer at the front-end. You may therefore replace Flex with any technology that can interact with Coldfusion to produce the front-end. I would recommend powering Coldfusion with jQuery (and its AJAX features).

Thank you BK. It is actually like you say. Coldfusion is the back-end and Flash/Flex is interacting with it through remoting. Flex was used to build an application for the timetable and scheduling of operators who are doing tasks from location to location. The Flex app implements cairngom framework and the events interact with CFCs. I am new in Coldfusion and took over the application but I am hoping I have explained clearly. Thanks.

Then, as I said, you could replace Flex with a Javascript library like jQuery. That would take care of the displays and the interaction with ColdFusion.
