Flashbuilder 4 and DTO2FX generates errors

  • Anonymous - 2010-05-28

    I am using Flashbuilder 4 to build my application and have added the proper files and annotations to get DTO2FX to work and on the initial build my java objects created my remote flex objects perfectly.  All except 1 file.  This is a very simple file that has inheritance which produces an error in the equivalent .as file.  One file is easy enough to change; however, I recently created a new project and put the output of DTO2FX to another project and all my model objects show this behavior.  The following is the information for the simpler case.

    The error I get is:
    1084: Syntax error: expecting identifier before rightparen.    _Resource.as            /nueFed/src/flex/com/foo/ue/model/resource/generated        line 27  Flex Problem

    The _Resource.as file looks like this:  (Notice the  duplicate import statements and the duplication ););  in the toXML function)

    package com.foo.ue.model.resource.generated {
      import com.foo.ue.model.Entity;
      import com.foo.ue.model.Entity;
      import flash.utils.Dictionary;
      /*  */
      public class _Resource extends com.foo.ue.model.Entity {
        /* Constructor */
        public function _Resource():void {
        override public function get properties():Dictionary {                  
          var properties:Dictionary = super.properties;  
          return properties;
        override public function set properties(properties:Dictionary):void {
          super.properties = properties;

        override public function toXML():XML {
          var xml:XML = super.toXML(););
          return xml;

    The java Resource file looks like this:

    package com.foo.ue.model.resource;

    import com.foo.ue.model.Entity;
    import com.farata.dto2fx.annotations.FXClass;

    * @author castleboomer
    * @version 1.0
    * @created 25-May-2010 3:21:02 PM
    public class Resource extends Entity {

          public Resource(){



    I am using the 3.2.2 rev of the DTO2FX jar

    I am experiencing exactly the same error. Does anyone have a fix for this ?

    here's what is being generated, notice the missing ");"

    override public function toXML():XML {
          var xml:XML = super.toXML();
          return xml;

    I have resolved this problem by using an earlier version of the DTO2FX jars.

    I could not find anywhere to download earlier versions but someone was kind enough to send me their copies of com.farata.dto2fx.asap_3.1.0.20090225034925.jar and the corresponding com.farata.dto2fx.annotations.jar with class files around the same date.

    I would be happy to email these out to anyone who asks.

    Thank you guys for reporting, there was a bug in cdb.dto2fx.plugin/xslt/as3-remote-class-generated.xslt and I have checked in the fix to the code repository. In essense, replaced
          xml.appendChild(<xsl:element name="{@name}">{this.<xsl:value-of select="@name"/>}</xsl:element></xsl:for-each>);
          xml.appendChild(<xsl:element name="{@name}">{this.<xsl:value-of select="@name"/>}</xsl:element>);</xsl:for-each>
