Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33639) Falcon compiles cleanly, but resulting SWF displays no output.
Date Sat, 27 Jul 2013 19:17:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33639?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13721723#comment-13721723
] 

J. Terry Corbet commented on FLEX-33639:
----------------------------------------

As I arrived at the ability to test the new compiler by building the flex-sdk and the flex-falcon
executables from the ground up targeting the current Flash Player [11.8, swf-version 21] and
current AIR release [3.8], I thought I ought to test to determine whether that was causing
the problem of the compiler creating what is evidently not a valid swf file.  So, after another
batch of work, I have, instead, run the tests using the build configuration that is being
used in the nightly Jenkins run, which targets only Flash Player 11.1, swf-version 14.  The
end-result is the same.  The compiler runs reporting successful compilation, but when the
stand-alone debugger runs it, there is nothing on the stage.

I have also been able to run the tests against other basicTests/spark/views and none of them,
except HelloWorld, seem to yield correct output.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: MXML Compiler

> If I have correctly followed the nightly Jenkins output for tests of the Falcon Compiler
what is primarily being tested and reported is the successful unit test suite.  I had begun
testing against some of my own, trivial test programs, but then discovered that you already
have a better set of files available.  That solves all the problems of my having to send my
code, my test environment, etc.  I'm testing using your source files.
> So, after confirming that basicTests\spark]views\HelloWorld.mxml compiles and seems to
produce the correct on stage output when run through the stand-alone debugger, I next grabbed
your nice low-level test for a DataGrid at basicTests\spark\views\DataGridTests.mxml.
> I don't know if your new compiler has taken some of the features of the fcsh wrapper
from the old compiler or not, but at least superficially, it seems like a second compilation
is much faster than a first one. HelloWorld waddled around for 14 seconds, but DataGrid reported
back, thusly in about 5 seconds:
> ==========
> D:\FlexSDK\ABlackboard\falconTB>D:\FlexSDK\ABlackboard\falconsdk\bin\mxmlc DataGridTests.mxml
> Using Falcon codebase: D:\\FlexSDK\\ABlackboard\\falconsdk
> Using Flex SDK: D:\\FlexSDK\\ABlackboard\\falconsdk
> Loading configuration: D:\FlexSDK\ABlackboard\falconsdk\frameworks\flex-config.xml
> 518865 bytes written to D:\FlexSDK\ABlackboard\falconTB\DataGridTests.swf in 6.177 seconds
> D:\FlexSDK\ABlackboard\falconTB>
> ==========
> So, while that's the good news, the bad news is if I run that half-megabye swf file,
the screen comes up completely empty.
> BTW I am sorry to have clicked the Component Drop Down for the old compiler, but I could
not find anything that seemed correct for keeping track of Falcon for Flex or Falcon for AIR.
 Whomever owns JIRA ought to be able to fix that.
