Is the Web Flow test code in chapter 9 of the latest revisions online and as written in the book supposed to work? I've given up on this exact code as I get different errors, but at least it got me started trying out PowerMock for (some) static Entity methods and Mockito. Very smart and modern.

We are going to move this content to online only, as
most of it is unrelated to Roo and more a general Spring
Webflow tutorial. The jspx stuff is a nugget - something
that will work as a supplimental blot post.

In answer to your question, I have deferred fixing the
sample due to the higher priority of tightening the
manuscript.

Re: chapter 9
That's probably a good idea. I was going to ask for more clear boundaries between Web Flow and what Roo can help you with concerning that and also vs the web flow example itself.

It's mystery why no-one have written a good Web Flow 2 book yet. It's much needed.

The best guide I've seen so far is from the Wheeler brothers. They have been working on Manning's Spring in Practice, and if you do a google search, their blog series on Web Flow is outstanding.
