Subject Re: [FlexJS] Why FlexJS compiler statically looks for 'src' folder
Date Thu, 01 Jun 2017 15:16:00 GMT
And if you just use -output and not -js-output the bin folder will be
where you specified -output, and if you specify
-output=somefolder\somefile.swf the output will be in somefolder\bin.

The logic is trying to say:
1) If you specify -output as a SWF, we will use the parent folder of the
2) If you specify -output as a folder, we will use that folder
3) If you specify -js-output, we will use that regardless of what you used
for -output
4) If you didn't specify -output or -js-output then
  A) If you have a src folder or src/main/flex folder we will use the
parent of src
  B) Otherwise we will use the parent folder of the main source file.

I don't agree that CWD is the right default.  For me, I've always had a
folder full of test cases and am not always changing folders.  I think the
regular Flex MXMLC worked this way as well so I didn't want to change that

4A is just a convenience for those who follow certain common patterns so
they don't have to do as much typing on the command line.  It might also
"do the right thing" for Flash Builder users.  I think Maven always
specifies the output folder.

My 2 cents,
