Java adapter example not compiling

Level 1
Hi folks,

Can anyone please let me know why I get the error : "1046:
Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: Contact"

on this line :
public var contact:Contact; in my Flex 2 app example which I
am following at
http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flex/2/docs/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?context=LiveDocs_Pa...



I have followed the tut so far down to the letter, but still
no joy.

I have the following setup:

1) flex 2 data services setup at :

2) copied the structure as required for Contact.as - this
file is in the folder
C:\fds2\jrun4\servers\default\samples\DSLessons\samples\contact\Contact.as
which as far as I can tell is correct. The contents of contact.as
is straight from Adobe :

package samples.contact

[Managed]

[RemoteClass(alias="samples.contact.Contact")]

public class Contact

{

public var contactId:int;



public var firstName:String = "";



public var lastName:String = "";



public var address:String = "";



public var city:String = "";



public var state:String = "";



public var zip:String = "";



public var phone:String = "";

}

}

the mxml is :





<?xml version="1.0" ?>

<mx:Application xmlns:mx="
http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml">

<mx:Script>

<![CDATA[

import mx.data.DataService;

import mx.collections.ArrayCollection;

import samples.contact.Contact;



public var ds:DataService;



[Bindable]

public var contacts:ArrayCollection;

public var contact:Contact;



]]>

</mx:Script>





<mx:DataGrid id="dg" editable="true">

<mx:columns>

<mx:DataGridColumn dataField="contactId" headerText="Id"
editable="false"/>

<mx:DataGridColumn dataField="firstName"
headerText="First Name"/>

<mx:DataGridColumn dataField="lastName" headerText="Last
Name"/>

</mx:columns>

</mx:DataGrid>







</mx:Application>



as you can see, I have not even completed it yet !!!!

In which directory is your mxml file? It should be in
C:\fds2\jrun4\servers\default\samples\DSLessons.

The import samples.contact.Contact tells the compiler to look
for a directory structure samples\contact, then the class
Contact.as. This dir structure has to be under relative to the mxml
file.

BTW, a note was added by the Adobe doc guys:

mpeterson said on Jul 5, 2006 at 1:19 PM :



The "contact" sample application used in this tutorial IS
NOT included in the Flex Data Services samples web application. The
required files are available in the following zip file, which you
can unzip into the samples (root directory) of the samples web
application:


http://www.adobe.com/go/flex2_contact_app_zip



After unzipping the file, copy the following destination
definition after the last destination in the
samples/WEB-INF/flex/data-management-config.xml file:

<destination id="contact">



<adapter ref="java-dao" />



<properties>


<source>samples.contact.ContactAssembler</source>

<scope>application</scope>



<metadata>

<identity property="contactId"/>

</metadata>



<network>

<session-timeout>20</session-timeout>

<paging enabled="false" pageSize="10" />

<throttle-inbound policy="ERROR" max-frequency="500"/>

<throttle-outbound policy="REPLACE"
max-frequency="500"/>

</network>



<server>

<fill-method>

<name>loadContacts</name>

</fill-method>



<fill-method>

<name>loadContacts</name>

<params>java.lang.String</params>

</fill-method>



<sync-method>

<name>syncContacts</name>

</sync-method>

</server>

</properties>

</destination>
