HttpUnit web-app problem

I am working on a web application integration using Flex and Java as the back-end. HttpUnit is used to pull data from websites. However, as a standalone app, the java code(HttpUnit) works as expected. When integrated with Flex, the WebConversation method: getResponse(WebRequest) hangs.

Is HttpUnit supposed to be used as standalone app? If not where am i going wrong.

ps. Already checked with the Adobe ...Flex has nothing to do with it. Wrote tests to verify.

Below is a code snippet: "//<<---Hangs" indicates where it hangs.

WebConversation conversation = new WebConversation();

WebRequest request = new GetMethodWebRequest(this.INDEX_PAGE);
WebResponse response = conversation.getResponse(request); //<<--Hangs!!
WebForm [] loginForms = response.getForms(); //only one form on page

for(WebForm loginForm : loginForms)
loginForm.setParameter("session_key", this.username);
loginForm.setParameter("session_password", this.password);
response = loginForm.submit();
request = new GetMethodWebRequest(homeURL);
response = conversation.getResponse(request);
pageSource = response.getText();
catch (IOException e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
catch (SAXException e) { e.printStackTrace(); }

Aren't Flex applications Flash-based? HttpUnit only understands HTTP and HTML so I'm kind of puzzled about what exactly you're trying to test with HttpUnit?
