I apologize if this is the incorrect thread for this post (I noticed a similar issue in the Spring Roo thread), but I ran into this issue while trying to follow this guide:
As part of the guide, you are supposed to copy the file:
into the following folder:
After doing this, any roo command hangs STS indefinitely. Only a force quit will allow me to do anything else. At this point I have to re-install STS to get roo to work again. Deleting the .jar file doesn't bring roo back into a usable state.
I have added my findings to the following jira ticket for roo flex integration:
I have tried this under the following configurations.
Mac OS X 10.6
STS 2.5.0.RELEASE (Cocoa 64bit)
Mac OS X 10.6
STS 2.5.0.RELEASE (Carbon)
Flex Builder 4 plugin (requires carbon version of STS)
Both end up in hanging an roo commands after the jar has been copied.
I have been using STS and Roo since M1 and am extremely happy with the RELEASE build =) And from what I can tell on the various forum posts, STS 2.3.3.M1 with Roo 1.1.0.M1 was the last build that spring-flex.1.5.0.M1 worked with. See the versions referenced in this video:
For now I am going to go back to that release and see if I can get it working and back port my current roo scripts to that version so I can make progress.
Let me know if there is any additional information I can provide (log files etc.) that might help in tracking this down.
This is a show stopper for people using Roo + Flex to try and get Flex/BlazeDS going using the existing documentation >.<
Thanks again for all your hard work on Spring + Roo + Flex, being a recent converter I am really excited to see enterprise java become more coding and less busy work =P
