Subject AW: AW: Flex Maven FDK Generator RC1
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2012 09:51:29 GMT
As far as I understood the thing, Apache can't ship a binary version because it has some deps
to stuff which you have to accept a license for. This is one of the reasons Om is working
on the installer, to automate this process (Hope I got this right). Even the Apache FDK depends
on stuff you can only get from Adobe ... at least stuff like the playerglobal and airglobal.
So I don't see a way how everything could be loaded without accepting an Adobe license.

That was why I was thinking about adding the license information to the poms and eventually
create a maven dependencyResolver that only downloads licensed artifacts if you accept them
by adding them to a "we accept these licenses" section to your pom. But this wouldn't prevent
users from using the normal resolver to download everything without accepting the license

One option I could think of would be that Adobe could host some repo containing their stuff
and have access to that repo restricted by username+password. So you have to create a user
in order to access it and when creating the user you have to accept the license agreement.
I think this would be an acceptable approach for the users, but I doubt that Adobe would be
willing to spare the resources for creating such a repo (You would need to develop some lightweight
portal for gegisetring, managing your account, accepting the license agreement, ...).

Ok Chris,

so the problem is only related to older Adobe sdks. For newer (Apache)
this workflow would be ideal, isn't it?

> Ideally I agree, but then you have the problem, that maven would download artifacts automatically
without you or your companies nexus/artifactory/whatsoever agreeing to Adobes License terms.
That's why I think the best solution, currently, would be to generate the FDKs from the SDKs
you downloaded from Adobe and hereby agreed to the license terms.
