Subject Re: SDK 4.9 vs SDK 4.x compilation time in IDEA
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 11:57:03 GMT
IntelliJ IDEA Built-in compiler shell is future-compatible and it 
already supports Apache Flex SDK 4.9. To have it working please check 
- Uncheck 'Use external build' at Settings/Prefereces | Compiler (this 
step won't be needed in IntelliJ IDEA 12.1, see details [1])
- Make sure 'Built-in compiler shell' is checked at Settings/Prefereces 
| Compiler | Flex Compiler
- Make sure that all Flash build configurations of all modules use the 
same SDK (Project Structure dialog). If there are 2 or more different 
SDKs IntelliJ IDEA switches to mxmlc/compc processes.

I'll give some more comments for your issue in YouTrack [2]
