Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-38) Build script requires sh on Windows
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2012 15:59:23 GMT


Oleg Sivokon commented on FLEX-38:

1. How would symlinks be handled on Windows? (I'm not even sure Windows users need that part
of the SDK at all - it seem to be the ADL + supporting libraries for launching it on *nix).
2. Doing it the way it was done is a bad idea too, because the permissions given to the user
of the terminal / shell running the build may differ from those given to the sh shell called
in this way (it actually was for me), so that Ant can't later delete the files extracted in
this way.

> There is a call to sh with automatically generated shell script that was used to untar
the AIR archive. On Windows it wouldn't work and on Linux it would unpack with the permissions
given to the user of the terminal, rather then the permissions given to Ant user (files created
would be protected for Ant script later).
