I’ve been working on creating a Flash component for within our LMS that allows a student to view their completion statuses in a curriculum, as
well as allows managers to view the curriculum status of all of their students. The component relies on Web Services to volley data with the server. I was having some trouble binding data from my WebServiceConnector to my DataSets because, as it turned out, Flash was holding on to a cached version of the WSDL–a cached version that was ultimately obsolete.
I was on the hunt to find the source, and kill the evil cache file. After clearing out every Temp folder I could think of, I started playing around in my Local Settings folder and it turns out that Flash will forever-store cached copies of your WSDL deep within your ‘Documents and settings’.
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Macromedia\[your flash version]\en\Configuration\WebServices\
I just booted every file in the WebServices directory, but I am assuming that you could get away with just deleting ‘WSDLCacheMap.xml’, or if you want to keep the remainder of your cache, just delete the appropriate WSDL cache file (ex: WSDLkgzmcu.wsdl). In any event, once you have exercised your delete button, simply restart Flash and reload the WSC instance, and you will be good to go.
