Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33150) Progamatically verify the MD5 hash of the downloaded Apache Flex SDK
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 19:26:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33150?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13426835#comment-13426835

OmPrakash Muppirala commented on FLEX-33150:


Thanks a lot for working on this.  I havent tried your code yet.  Will do it tonight.  

I prefer to keep the hash verification mandatory.  Compared to the overall download times,
the ~150 seconds should not be too much of an addition.
