Subject [FALCONJX] Combining SWF and JS compilers (was Re: AW: [FalconJX][FlexJS] COMPJSC and Build order)
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2016 05:45:48 GMT
Fred Thomas did some work in this area about a year ago.  In the
flex-oem-compiler module that FB (and maybe other IDEs) use to talk to the
compiler, he added a FLEXJS_DUAL -js-output-type.  Not sure how well it

Thinking about this some more we'd have to have the same configuration
options available to both compilers which might be a bit strange.  Or
maybe we can convince the compilers to not complain about unknown config

We'd have to decide on how to reset the library-path for each compile.
The JS compile might use different SWCs than the SWF compile.

We'd have to select a few conditional compile options that would be
different for each compiler.  For example, COMPILE::SWF would be true for
SWF compiling and false for JS compiling and vice versa, and maybe finding
those params on the command-line would have no effect since they would be
dictated by the compiler.
