Just looking to see if I'm on the right track...

Howdy. Decided to give Robotlegs a go today and wrote a really simple RSS loader/viewer. I've attached it to this post and was curious if anyone might have a spare minute to look it over and let me know if I'm on the right track. If I do happen to be on the right track, have a go at what I could perhaps do better. Thanks.

    I didn't run it, but I took a look at the code, and I think you're definitely on the right track.

    My only comments would be:
    1 - It's very clean and neat.
    2 - In you're context you don't need to provide the constructor. Not really a critique. I just thought it might as well not be there.. That is unless you are switching the auto startup property occasionally.
    3 - You could omit the entire startup command/event sequence and just do your mappings in the context's startup command, but I like you're technique :)

    Looks good to me!

    If you don't provide the constructor in the context you get a compile time error:

    Error: Incorrect number of arguments. Expected 0.

    Thanks for the comments.

    This runs for me. What version of the framework are you using?

    // Imports have been cut out for brevity
    package com.mailsettings.contexts
    public class MailModuleContext extends Context
        override public function startup():void
           mediatorMap.mapView(contextView, MailModuleMediator, MailSettingsModule);
           commandMap.mapEvent(DomainEmailEvent.QUERY_DOMAIN_EMAIL, QueryDomainEmailCommand);
           commandMap.mapEvent(EmailAccountEvent.ADD_EMAIL_ACCOUNT, AddEmailAccountCommand);
           commandMap.mapEvent(EmailAccountEvent.EDIT_EMAIL_ACCOUNT, EditEmailAccountCommand);
           commandMap.mapEvent(EmailAccountEvent.DELETE_EMAIL_ACCOUNT, DeleteEmailAccountCommand);
           injector.mapSingletonOf(IEmailService, EmailService);

    Odd. I'm using 1.0.1 as seen by the swc file in the lib folder.

    I took a look at your code and it's nice and clean, good work.

    @levi I always leave the constructor on my context, but that's because of my laziness to delete it. Don't know why you shouldn't have it, it's not getting in the way. Also, yeah, i like to do my mappings in the context and skip the whole startup command/event thing.
