I had the same problem.
I don't think it should be a requirement to manually build flex-blazeds before building flex-sdk.
If the SDK needs something in BlazeDS, BlazeDS should have an ant target that automatically
builds that thing without error, and the ant script for flex-sdk should call that target.
The README should explain that you must have source for both repos and that you have asset
BLAZEDS_HOME to point to flex-blazeds in addition to setting FLEX_HOME to point to flex-sdk.
(Bummer that this isn't called SDK_HOME, or that both aren't FLEX_SDK_HOME and FLEX_BLAZEDS_HOME.)
The way that the build.xml for flex-sdk finds the flex-blazeds repo looks inconsistent. I
see references to ${BLAZEDS_HOME}, but I don't have this set and the script didn't seem to
complain. I also see references to ${FLEX_HOME}/../flex-blazeds and to ${FLEX_HOME}/../blazeds.
All references should go through BLAZEDS_HOME and an early check should fail if this isn't
Is the dependency on BlazeDS something that got added recently? What does the SDK need from
