Subject Re: Class loading question
Date Sat, 05 Feb 2011 07:33:52 GMT
I wish I hadn't introduced that version of BXMLSerializer#readObject().  :-)  It seems to cause
more confusion than anything else.

Resources in Pivot behave the same as resource bundles in the JDK. If you use the readObject(URL,
Resources) signature rather than readObject(Class<?>, String) it will probably make
more sense. Apologies for the confusion.

(from a.b.c.Main).  First off, using a name of “d/dialog.bxml” loads the file fine and
I can see it on screen, BUT none of my @BXML variables inside “a.b.c.d.Dialog” get set,
and I get no errors or exceptions.

giving me “Can’t find resource for base name a.b.c.d.Dialog, locale en_US” messages.
 Okay, so I have to move the resources into there too, which means more initialization, etc.,
> So, I guess my question is this:  what is the best way to organize the markup files and
resource file(s) in this package hierarchy?  And what is the “right” way to use the class
names to load resources and send to the BXMLSerializer so that my annotated variables get
set correctly?  Should I always pass the same class name to the serializer (and hence put
the resources and bxml files in the same directory(ies)) as the Java classes?  If I want to
put stuff in a common places (or places) where should that be?
