Creating a Remote Object DataManager in ActionScript 3.0 for Flex 2.0

Tien Nguyen followed up on my WebService DataManager with one for RemoteObject as well

Tien Nguyen followed up on my WebService DataManager with one for RemoteObject as well.
I haven't had a chance to try it myself yet, but this RemoteObject DataManager should work through the CFAdapter for more efficient data transport with ColdFusion Components

package managers {
    import flash.events.EventDispatcher;
    import flash.util.*;
    import mx.rpc.events.ResultEvent;
    import mx.rpc.events.FaultEvent;
    import mx.rpc.AbstractOperation;
    import mx.rpc.remoting.mxml.RemoteObject;
    import mx.utils.ObjectUtil;
    import events.DataManagerResultEvent;
    import mx.controls.Alert;
   DataManager - singleton class which enforces only
   a single object is created for each service.  To
   access DataManager, use getDataManager(cfservice:String)
    public class DataManagerCF extends EventDispatcher {
        private var CFsvc:RemoteObject;
        private var eventName:String;
        // hashmap of instances for each service
        private static var instanceMap:Object = new Object();
        public function DataManagerCF(pri:PrivateClass,dest:String){
            this.CFsvc = new RemoteObject();
            CFsvc.destination = dest;
        public static function getDataManager(CFsvc:String):DataManagerCF{
          if(DataManagerCF.instanceMap[CFsvc] == null){
               DataManagerCF.instanceMap[CFsvc] = new DataManagerCF(new PrivateClass(),CFsvc);
          var dm:DataManagerCF= DataManagerCF.instanceMap[CFsvc];
          return dm;
        public function makeRemoteCall(methodName:String,eventName:String,...args:Array):Void{
            this.eventName = eventName;
            var op:mx.rpc.AbstractOperation = CFsvc[methodName];
            CFsvc.addEventListener("result", doResults);
            CFsvc.addEventListener("fault", doFault);
            if(args.length >0){
            }  else {
        private function doResults(result:ResultEvent):Void{
             var e:DataManagerResultEvent = new DataManagerResultEvent(eventName,result.result);
        private function doFault(fault:FaultEvent){
        public override function toString():String{
             return "DataManagerCF";
   PrivateClass is used to make
   DataManager constructor private
  private class PrivateClass{
        public function PrivateClass() {}

I'll post more on this in the next few days as I get a chance to work with it.
