Subject AW: AW: [FlexJS] More SWCs
Date Fri, 10 Apr 2015 20:46:11 GMT
Reading this, by that change we would actually get FlexMojos support out of the box :-) Great

I remember the night I had to work through to get the first Flexmojos FlexJS build up and
runnning prior to the Apache EU last year :-) The main problem was that the SWCs weren't at
all different from the "default" ones and that the structure of the JS stuff was completely
different and monolithic.

As soon as I have the Mavenizer out the door, That nasty Flexmojos Bug fixed and my latest
changes to the mavenizer reflected in Flexmojos ... ok ... perhaps I'll stick a few hours
in FlexUnit and then I'll be glad to help get FlexJS on the road :-)

Betreff: Re: AW: [FlexJS] More SWCs

Mike, Fred,

Thanks for the info.  Sounds like you did something more complex than what
I’m thinking, or maybe I’m not considering something.  I sure hope it
doesn’t take me 4 months.  What were the difficult parts of doing this?

You can already stick files in a SWC.  They are just zip archives.  I was
just going to have COMPJSC open the SWC, jam the folder of js files it
created into the SWC and update the catalog.xml.  MXMLJSC would open the
SWCs and deploy the JS files to the js-debug output folder.

I’ll definitely take a closer look at the Randori Bundle code when I
actually get around to this.

Thanks again,
