Subject RE: Building the SDK from git
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2013 15:42:04 GMT
Thanks, that's really helpful.

I understand I launch the general build.xml the first time only, and then only need to run
the build.xml for the project I am working on (eg. experimental/build.xml) which will compile
rather quickly.

Is that correct ?

I normally use Flash Builder to edit files (but sometimes vi from the command line) and I
normally compile using ant from the command line.

I have the entire SDK as a single general project, that way it works nicely when debugging,
but there's probably other ways of setting it up.

Ant can be run from within Flash Builder, right right click on a build.xml file and select
Run As then "Ant build" (which will do an ant main), if you select "Ant build..." you can
specify which target to run. I'd assume other IDE's have the same feature.

Once you have an SDK set up you can compile each project in framework/projects as you make
changes, they compile reasonable quickly (under a min for each one). Just be careful is using
Flash Builder this was as sometime (not often) it can cache the pervious versions, if so just
swap the project SDK to another then back again and that seem to clear the cache.
