Subject Re: Automatically register class aliases
Date Fri, 30 Aug 2013 10:50:40 GMT
[RemoteClass] does register class alias automatically, but then you have to
make sure you have a reference to every class (you had it implicitly
calling registerClassAlias), otherwise it won't be picked up by the
compiler and won't be there at runtime (that is worse than the risk of
forgetting them in your registering classes, IMO).

You can use a compiler directive -include-libraries to force inclusion of
all these classes (and thus alias registration), if you move all of these
"stub/vo" classes in a dedicated library (that is probably not a bad idea
