Subject RE: Who's a flex compiler-configuration pro on this list?
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 21:53:31 GMT
Although I'm knowledgeable about the new Falcon compiler, I'm not particularly knowledgable
about the OEM API for the old compiler. (Falcon discontinued this API.) But my first googling
brought up this link:

http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/compilerAPI_flex3.pdf

Are you aware of this document?

Well ... glad to help :-)

I was just assuming that because the oem-compiler is part of Flex, that in the Flex group
there would probably be some people that have experience with that and could give me a hand
with the ideal way of using it. 

After all ... the resulting plugin should be as performant as possible and as I'm starting
to work on something completely new I can build the basic design around that ideal usage pattern.

Changing this afterwards will definitely be more work.

So now you're helping us instead of the other way around ;) I'm definitely going to take a
look at that.
I suppose another advantage would be better control over logging, because at the moment we're
limited to whatever the ANT task puts on the output stream.
