Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-53) Clarify usage of playerglobal.swc and airglobal.swc
Date Wed, 02 May 2012 08:16:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-53?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13266423#comment-13266423

Bertrand Delacretaz commented on FLEX-53:
-----------------------------------------

Thanks for the explanation! That clarifies things.

The equivalent in Java would be API classes then - binary files that describe APIs and are
required to compile code that uses those APIs.

I think it is now clear that those .swc files are only needed at compile time, and people
will not need to redistribute them with applications that they build with Apache Flex.

I suggest that we leave the other AIR SDK utilities out of this for now, let's create a separate
issue for those if needed.

> As discussed in [1], Flex requires
> 1) playerglobal.swc to compile the majority of the Flex components
> 2) airglobal.swc to compile the Flex components targeted at AIR
> 3) many pieces of the AIR Integration kit which are need to do Flex mobile development
> We might need clarification for 3), but for now we need to find out how to use these
files while abiding by their license requirements and complying with the ASF's restrictions
on incompatible license (http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html).
> According to Alex in [1] those two files are covered by this license:
> http://www.adobe.com/products/eulas/pdfs/adobe_flex_software_development_kit-combined-20110916_0930.pdf
> And it seems like they're only needed at build time, so users of Flex could get them
independently.
