Subject Re: Time for an Apache Flex compiler.
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 12:41:59 GMT
I really agree with Rui. I believe it will be a waste of time, because even
if Adobe will donate it at the beginning of 2013, I'm pretty sure that when
they will have a stable solution it will be provided to all developers,
even if is only AS3 and not MXML.
And if your target is mobile or web, you will still be able to compile flex
code (even Apache Flex SDK) with Flash Builder 4.x. And also I'm not sure
that mobile devices are capable of keeping up with tehnical requirements
that an enterprise app built with flex needs.
We should focus on making the sdk better and adding stuff that adobe didn't
do, not something that Adobe is working on.
