As a quick fix what I can say is to use Flex 3 Beta to generate the web services stubs and use them in flex 2 this reduces  the basic issue for the time being.

When is that parse exception occuring ? is it when you try to compile the code or when you run the flex application?

when I compile it.  a red X comes up with that parsing error.  Can a <mx:WebService be done in a state (<mx:AddChild..)?

Ya I think you can try that but why introducing more complex stuff, instead use Flex 3 beta just to create the stubs for the Web service, and copy these classes and use them in you flex 2 :) it will be no more than a normal method call to invoke web services using this approach. Try it.

The problem is that you can't put the webservice there, move it up to below style.

Ok, that seemed to fix the compile issue but my components within my child state cannot retrieve db records.  what else am I doing wrong?  this is what I have..
