Subject AW: BlazeDS not compiling for clean copy of SDK source
Date Sun, 14 Dec 2014 12:16:15 GMT
How about re-organizing the code of the project? (But I would opt to do that after a release)
Currently it seems as if the actual project is embedded in a wrapper of the old build (which
I didn't get to work)
I would like to move the "modules" content out to become the root, and to move all the old
stuff to some "attic" directory I don't want to delete it, just want to park it so if users
come with special needs, we can check what we have to do to revive parts of the attic code.

We can make changes, but IMO, flex-falcon relies on flex-sdk being built first, so I thought
that was fair precedence.  For both the BlazeDS and TLF dependencies, the flex-sdk script
checks to see if you have the repos in a few expected places so you don’t have to set up
environment variables.  We’ve been doing this for TLF for some time now.

Yes, the BlazeDS dependency was added a few days ago.  Before then, the SDK downloaded flex-messaging-common.jar
from Adobe BlazeDS.  We have now reduced our Adobe proprietary dependencies to just the optional
fontswf jars.  OSMF is under MPL, and AIR and Flash are considered build tools.
The flex-messaging-common.jar is only needed when specifying a services-config in the MXMLC
command line.  No idea if this is supported in Falcon.  FlexJS currently doesn’t leverage
