Subject Re: Who's a flex compiler-configuration pro on this list?
Date Sat, 24 Nov 2012 22:55:28 GMT
I'm not a Maven user, so maybe I'm unclear what the main use cases are.  One
of the ones that I was told about was quickly updating to new versions of
Flex, and I assumed it might also mean updating to new versions of the
player or AIR SDK.

I can see dropping in new versions of playerglobal.swc or airglobal.swc, but
when building a .AIR file (and or an AIRI for signing) or a mobile package,
I'm pretty sure other parts of the AIR SDK are involved and that they might
change between AIR versions.

Or can you install an AIR SDK once and change airglobal versions and it will
all work?
