Subject AW: AW: Splitting up Flex and Air?
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 09:36:50 GMT
Hi Frederic,

well as far as I know, as long as you use the Air version that was naturally bundled with
the corresponding FDK, then all should work already. The only problem is that if you want
to use a different Air SDK. Currently the adt of the original FDK is used, but it should be
the version shipped with the desired Air SDK version. That's what I'm intending on doing.
The only change you should need to use that updated version with FM would be that you need
to add a "compiler" artifact for the Flex-SDK as well as one additional Air-SDK compiler artifact.

Hi Chris,

I'm doing an AIR App, so let me know when you update FM pls, like that I can test it, btw,
do you mind if I update the mavenizer as when the Flex build number is 0, instead of having
a version number + '.0', I put version number

Hi Om,

Well I think this would definitely be a cool thing. Then the user will have several ways of
getting a mavenized FDK (Intaller, Manually Mavenizing, Mavenizer integrated into the maven-flex-plugin
and by using the auto-download-feature of the maven-flex-plugin (the one I was talking to
Alex about)).

But before officially adding this, I'd like to modify the mavenizer to correctly mavenize
the Air compiler artifacts (adt.jar, smaili.jar and

Chris, I meant to reply earlier, but forgot.

The installer already downloads everything while displaying the required licenses along the
way.  Do you think having a "Mavenize" button at the end would be a good idea?  We could just
call your mavenize ant script from the AIR app.  Please let me know if this is something you
would be interested.
I would be glad to help you out with this.
