Description: (1). Inheritance using classes in different packages causes an error, example:

package system.core

public class firstClass {
public var id:int;



package system.utils

import system.core.firstClass;

public class secondClass extends firstClass
public var myProperty:String;



var myInstance:secondClass = new secondClass();
myInstance.myProperty = "FlexORM Rox!";

--> throws an error: No ID specified for secondClass!

If i put the second class in the same package as firstClass everything runs fine!

(2). Inheritance only work with 1 (one) level (remember that inheritance only works for classes in the same package as mentioned in previous item, and in this example all classes are in the same package), example:

class A {
public var id:int;

public class B extends A {
public var p1:String;

public class C extends B {
public var p2:String;


var instanceC:C = new C();
instanceC.p1 = "B";
instanceC.p2 = "C";


--> throws an error: SQLError: 'Error #3115: SQL Error.', details:'no such table: 'main.cs'', operation:'execute', detailID:'2013' [WHERE main.cs IS THE TABLE THAT FlexORM SHOULD STORE class C INSTANCES]

I think FlexORM isnt creating all tables when we have a multilevel inheritance ;)

I too am experiencing the same issue. Can anyone confirm that inheritance beyond one level is not supported in FlexORM?

Seems to me that inheritance in two or more levels does not work in async mode. Multilevel inheritance in sync mode worked fine.
