Subject RE: Debugging application with modules
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2014 11:34:42 GMT
FDB (Flash / Flex debugger): http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flex/using/WS2db454920e96a9e51e63e3d11c0bf69084-7ffb.html
To use it with AIR apps, first start fdb, then type "run" and start another command line in
which you launch your AIR app via ADL (don't forget to compile your AIR app / libs with debug=true),
fdb will trigger you AIR launch and you'll be able to debug it.
