I don't believe it's so much a matter of compatibility between the Flex Roo add-on and STS but rather between the Flex Roo add-on and Roo v. 1.1.1.
Much of the code in the 1.0.0 version of the Flex Roo add-on used methods/classes from the Roo v1.1.0 API which have either changed considerably or have been deprecated. The patch I posted yesterday contains changes/fixes which allow it to work with Roo v1.1.1. In order to build the Flex Roo add-on you'll need to checkout the Spring Roo project from the SpringSource git repo (http://git.springsource.org/) as well as the Spring Flex project (https://src.springsource.org/svn/spring-flex). Both sets of projects are Maven builds so you'll need a Maven install of at least v2.x or better.
If you have any questions about any of this definitely let me know and I'll be more than happy to help out.
Just in case you missed it, I posted a patch yesterday (link to the post containing the patch http://forum.springsource.org/showpo...4&postcount=10) which you can apply to the source of the spring-flex Flex Roo add-on project so it will work with Roo v1.1.1. If you have any questions or difficulties with the patch or otherwise, just let me know and I'll try to see if I can help.
Great news, Thomas thanks. Do you have any guess as to when it might make it into a nightly build or release? I must weigh rebuilding vs. waiting for the best use of my time.
Unfortunately, I have no idea as to when it might make it in to the nightly builds. I believe the SVN repo is read-only so I think the best bet might be to let Jeremy look at the patch I posted and then maybe he could make the call as to whether or not he wants to commit the changes.
As far as 'rebuilding vs. waiting', I would like to see you give it a shot just so there's another set of eyes looking at my changes The build isn't all that difficult to set up and once you have it working it's a matter of dropping the new Flex Roo add-on jar into your Roo bundles dir. If you do end up checking out the necessary projects and trying your own local build, I'd be more than happy to help you if you run into any snags.
Ok that being the case I will get started. I need to setup the Git repository and clone the ROO project sources, and let maven synch up. Is there a link to a guide on building from sources?
Just now getting around to reviewing this...just scanned it quickly, but it looks great so far, thanks!
Thomas - Can you do me a favor and attach your patch to this Jira?
I need that before I can officially accept and commit any of your changes.
Also, let me know your last name so I can add you as an @author as needed.

Super, just saved me hours to setup and rebuild everything. I will wait for a nightly build. it looks like 238 is the latest from Feb 9, 2011, right?
