Shameless plug: you can download the MIT-licensed code samples from my Flexible Rails book from http://www.flexiblerails.com/code-samples. Unzip the file and look in the iteration22 folder for the most fully developed example. It shows a Flex 2 application built using Cairngorm talking to Rails via HTTPService. (The application is developed iteratively, and is explained in great detail in the book. However, since the code is MIT-licensed, you can use it regardless of whether you buy the book.)
