Subject Re: Flex SDK 4.11 and workers.
Date Mon, 18 Nov 2013 09:57:04 GMT
Apache Flex SDK (all versions) includes debugger tool (fdb) that is not 
able to debug ActionScript workers and when you launch any app with 
workers for debugging it will most likely hang.
Adobe AIR SDK bundle that includes ActionScript Compiler 2.0 also 
includes an updated version of fdb tool that is able to debug 
ActionScript workers. Unfortunately donating the source code of this 
updated fdb from Adobe to Apache takes some time. The process is in 
progress since February when I first reported it to the Apache Flex dev 
team, but not finished yet.

By default Apache Flex SDK is installed together with 'reduced' AIR SDK 
that contains neither ActionScript Compiler 2.0, nor fdb tool that is 
able to debug AS workers. That's why switching to standalone AIR SDK 
3.9, or writing it over 4.11 fixes the problem partially.

I said 'partially' because currently IntelliJ IDEA doesn't support 
debugging of ActionScript workers even if the SDK contains 'correct' fdb 
tool. You won't have any problems with app execution and with [trace] 
statements both form main app and from workers. Though breakpoints won't 
work or will work incorrectly in 99% cases. Please watch/vote/comment:
