Subject Re: Continuous integration for Flex (was: [RT] Recommendation Unit-Test System?)
Date Sat, 11 Feb 2012 09:26:23 GMT
Hi, I'm the Co-founder of the GradleFx project, a plugin for the Gradle
build system to compile Flex projects.
I'm also interested in evaluating Gradle/GradleFx to build the Flex SDK,
because I think Gradle will benefit us in the long term. Gradle has
basically all the good things from Ant and Maven, without most of the
disadvantages.
These are some of its features:

   - Convention-over-configuration
   - Advanced multi-project support
   - Dependency Management (better handling of transitive dependencies)
   - Groovy scripting instead of xml
   - Support for Maven and Ivy repositories
   - Source file change detection (only recompiles the projects which have
   changed)
   - Very easy to add custom build logic

All this leads to a much shorter build script which is easier to customize
and understand.
