Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-8) Make SDK build with Maven/Flexmojos and deploy release and snapshot artifacts to the Apache Maven repository
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2012 09:07:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-8?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13218016#comment-13218016

Oleg Sivokon commented on FLEX-8:

Maven should not be a mandatory prerequisite for building SDK, period. If someone is sadomasochist
- let him or her enjoy it. You cannot down-vote an issue in JIRA, but if you could, that Maven-related
ticket wouldn't get that many votes as it has now.

As of today, there is no good, in fact, no bearable support for building Flex projects by
using Maven. What there is, is an amateurish effort, malfunctioning most of the time, something
that implements only half of the API available to the compiler. It is absolutely unusable
for real-world projects.

What I'm most afraid of is that the next step after Maven gets used for building the SDK,
same people who now so much want to have it will come with the demands like "please don't
use feature X, because feature X is impossible to do in Maven", or "please don't put these
files in the directory Y, because there is no way to set that in Maven", or "please don't
code in this perfectly valid way, because our Maven plugin doesn't allow this code to compile"
- I saw this happen before. And if you give a green light to these demands, you will be punished
for it, and will suffer just as well as the masochists who like that.
