Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34507) expected build.xml file missing from Linux binary tarball apache-flex-sdk-4.13.0-bin.tar.gz

Cooper Clauson commented on FLEX-34507:

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your response. :)

I believe that I may have been misunderstood--the problem is not with the *source* tarball,
which is this:
The problem is with the *binary* tarball, which is this:

The Flex site recommends that Linux users download the *binary* tarball and follow the installation
instructions there, rather than the *source* tarball.  However, if they do so, they will not
find the build.xml file in the untarred directory.  The workaround that I used was to download
the source tarball as well and copy the the build.xml file from there to the untarred binary

This seems to me to be most likely an accidental omission, and probably easy to fix--just
add the build.xml from the *source* tarball to the *binary* tarball on the download site?
 This assumes that both use the same build.xml, which seemed to work for me.

>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: Apache Flex 4.13.0
>         Environment: Linux
>            Reporter: Cooper Clauson
> This page: 
> http://flex.apache.org/download-binaries.html
> has a link to a binary download for Linux:
> http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/flex/4.13.0/binaries/apache-flex-sdk-4.13.0-bin.tar.gz
> In the README instructions, the user is instructed to run "ant framework-rsls" in the
untarred directory, direct quote:
> *****************************************
>     Additionally, you will need to build the RSLS for the SDK before you run the
>     batch files.
>         cd <flex.dir>
>         ant frameworks-rsls
> *******************************************
> However, there is no build.xml file in this directory.
> There is a build.xml file in the source distribution:
> http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/flex/4.13.0/apache-flex-sdk-4.13.0-src.tar.gz
> The source distribution's build.xml file does contain a framework-rsls target.  Is using
this file a workaround?
