Subject AW: Flex Maven FDK Generator RC1
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2012 10:45:54 GMT
Hi Carlos,

I was hoping that Apache would start publishing their FDKs in a Mavenized form. With the Tool
it should be almost no work at all. Frederic added a tool to deploy the generated artifacts
to Nexus, I am planning on creating something similar to deploy to Artifactory (I haven't
checked, if I even need to implement a separate tool). Using these it should be easy to integrate
them into the release build. If any maven/ant plugin adapters are needed I would be glad to
provide them.

The first step to mavenizing Flex is do decide on the structure of the project. I think my
Generator is a first step in this direction and that's one of the reasons why I would like
to open the discussion on the structure. My FDKs are my opinion on an ideal structure but
I would be glad to adjust if someone has any objections.

The poms are very simple. They don't contain the maven config needed to build. They even don't
contain the dependency information needed to build.
In order to use the poms to build Flex in Maven it would make it necessary to add the parent/child
module config stuff, the plugin configuration stuff, the dependencies and so on.
But even if it would not be a simple "drop in the poms" process, I think it shouldn't be that
hard.

Chris

Betreff: Re: Flex Maven FDK Generator RC1

Hi Chris,

this sounds very good. The point 5 should be the solution to the problem we had with themes.
I would like to have access to the link in order to test it.

btw, if this works and we finaly have a working process to have mavenized flex artifacts...could
this be integrated in the build process to apache flex to have official apache flex maven
artifacts?

Going one step further... would be possible to create pom.xml for each apache flex project
to create flex maven artificats from now on? This could generate maven flex artifacts from
source code with jenkins as part of the normal apache flex sdk generation process and could
be deployed to apache maven official repo.

Great work! :)
