Flex 4: Asynchronous Token

Flex is all about Event Driven Development

Consider an enterprise application in which a user can place purchase orders for some
parts and request price quotes from various suppliers. In this case, the user may click
several buttons, resulting in server-side calls to one or more destinations. On each click
event of the button, a RemoteObject sends a new request to the server.

Here’s the million-dollar question: how can the application code map arriving result
objects back to the initial requesters if they can come back to the client in an arbitrary

Ans: Asynchronous Token Pattern
The goal of the Asynchronous Token pattern is to properly route the processing on the
client in response to the data arriving asynchronously from the server.

OK, How do i design using it:
Flash 4 Builder can generate CallResponders for your service calls and what you all have
to do is write your business logic.
import mx.controls.Alert;
import mx.rpc.events.ResultEvent;
protected function getHelloString():void
getHelloStringResult.token = excelDbService.getHelloString();
protected function getHelloStringResult_resultHandler(event:ResultEvent):void
Alert.show( getHelloStringResult.lastResult);
<s:CallResponder id=”getHelloStringResult” result=”getHelloStringResult_resultHandler(event)”/>
<services:ExcelDbService id=”excelDbService” fault=”Alert.show(event.fault.faultString + ‘\n’ + event.fault.faultDetail)” showBusyCursor=”true”/>
