@Chris, After a quick look at FM6, I realized that it use AIRPackager 
instead of a direct call to ADT Class (4.6.0.x), so no target option (the 
type of package to create) can be append and then no mobile native 
application can be generated except for AIR packaging.

I guess, with a bit of effort, it would be possible to replace the 
FlexmojosAIRPackager to use ADT instead of AIRPackager and then be able  to 
generate every kind of packaging, what do you thing about ?

- Fred.

Well my Mavenizer doesn't deploy any air stuff besides the airglobal.swc and 
in the Flexmojos Testsuite there are tests for the different Air features 
and I am not having any trouble with that.
The only thing is that I do have to provide the same third party libs the 
Flex SDK needs to have provided. So if you are talking about these libs, you 
might be correct.
But It would already be a great improvement to be able to build Flex 
applications without manual intervention.
I have to admit that I have never ever done any Air yet nor any of the Flex 
guys around here that I have worked with.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not claiming that Nobody uses Air ... it's just that 
for those not using it this would be a great improvement.

I need convincing that this will work for captive runtime for mobile apps, 
and not sure how you are supposed to get the other executables that help 
make up the AIR package.

But if you want to try prototyping it, feel free.  I wll try to find time to 
help next week, if you need help.  I want to make sure it will work before 
we go ask for approvals.
