Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-61) AIR version of makeApacheFlexForFlashBuilder for Windows
Date Fri, 25 May 2012 20:38:20 GMT
I've checked in the build.xml and build.properties files to my github
repo.  Please take a look.

Big thanks to Jonathan Campos' blog post here:
http://www.unitedmindset.com/jonbcampos/2010/06/22/building-an-air-application-with-ant/

Due to the limitations of the ADT:
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/air/build/WS789ea67d3e73a8b22388411123785d839c-8000.html

You must use ADT on the same operating system as that of the native

As a result, if the build is run on a windows, an .exe file is created.  If
it is run on a Mac, a .dmg file will be created (can Justin or someone with
a Mac, please test this out?)

If the build is run on unix or linux, it will be aborted after displaying
an error message.  No files will be created.

Please let me know if I need to do something to integrate this into the
main build.xml.  I am not sure if I need to patch that file myself.  Glad
to do it if needed.

Thanks,
Om
