Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-8) Make SDK build with Maven/Flexmojos and deploy release and snapshot artifacts to the Apache Maven repository
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2012 10:34:43 GMT
Just b/c I wanted to be a prick, again. It's Ant, not ANT, even though it's
an abbreviation ;) Sorry, no offense meant. I probably do way too many
typos myself, it's just because it's kind of an Apache project and we are
on an Apache mailing list.

I have explained several lines above why *you* will be affected, not the
people who use Ant builds. Please, pay attention. I'll repeat, to make it
more obvious to you. The code below you *cannot compile using Maven plugin
called FlexMojos*:

CONFIG::debug { trace("I'm in debug mode!"); }

Seeing how things happened in practice, I can quite remember how people who
used Maven came to me complaining I used conditional compilation in the
project. Programming is, in a lot of way, a science of understanding and
fixing your errors. Using Maven for a Flex project was an error. If you
want to write a Maven plugin that wraps mxmlc + compc + whatever else there
is - I don't care, but if you want to build SDK using Maven - I care a
whole lot. I don't understand from your post what would be in the *apache
flex maven artifacts*. But, again, if that the framework code you
distribute to other people who want to use Maven for themselves - it's OK /
do whatever you want, I'm not commenting on it any more. But if this is
intended for people working on the SDK to build it - I'm strongly against
