thanx for the fast reply.
I have it working now. The strange thing is, i dont have a clue of what went wrong. Well 1 thing, i replaced the old springactionscript 0.71 today with 0.81 and it seems that this lib file was not refreshed somehow. Looks like some cache was holding the old one. Anyway after seeing your working code i restarting eclipse and that seemed to do the trick.
Sorry to waste your time in the weekend ;-)
