Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-35) Removing dependency to a contrib library in the MXML download/build script
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 13:04:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13257468#comment-13257468

Christophe Herreman commented on FLEX-35:
-----------------------------------------

I agree that this would be good. Although it is clearly stated in the README that ant-contrib
is a dependency, I saw some people at 360Flex that failed to build the SDK because they didn't
set this up (and didn't read the README). There is also not a clear error showing that ant-contrib
is missing. So if we can get rid of this extra dependency, I think we should do it.

> the modules/downloads.xml Ant build script is relying on a contrib library for performing
some trivial tasks. I suggest removing this dependency because less dependencies is better
then more dependencies :) It complicates somewhat the build process (users are requested to
download and set up a contrib library, which is nor automatic neither straight-forward.
