Subject AW: [POLL] Maven and Apache Flex
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2012 18:01:54 GMT
Yeah ... I meant Adobe :-)

Well I think the form in which Adobe provides the stuff would be a thing we could discuss
I guess there are a lot of options. 
- The one side would be downloader-mojo simply downloading the normal zip files containinig
AIR SDK or Flash Player stuff and mavenizing that on the client.
- The other side would be downloading fully mavenized resources directly from an Adobe server.
I guess there could be a number of options inbetween too.

I would prefer the option with fully mavenized resources being downloaded directly from Adobe,
but I am assuming it would probably be the other side that would be more realistic to hope
(I think Adobe doesn't want to do anything to support us in regard of Maven ... at least that's
my current assumption).
With this option it would be good if there was a systematic way of providing them so we wouldn't
have to maintain a mapping table for mapping versions to URLs but could calculate the url.
Something like "{flashversion}-{os}.zip" or "{airversion}-{os}.zip"
would be great. Doesnt actually have to be that URL, just that we could calculate the URL
for it by setting "type" (flash/air), "version" and "os" (win/mac/lnx).

Apache stuff or Adobe Stuff?

So, if I understand correctly, you will use the presence of the Adobe artifacts to skip prompting
the user to accept the license?

That sounds good to me.  So then all Adobe needs to do is put pom.xml files alongside the
different AIR SDK downloads?
