Subject Re: Falcon compiler(.tests) building
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 11:54:19 GMT
Latest news:

- I got myself a new working copy of the entire Flex SVN repo, so I
don't need to mess with paths etc. anymore.
- I did a build of the SDK in 'branches/develop' without problems.
- I did a build of the Falcon compiler ('ant main' in trunk) and got
the EXACT SAME results as before, i.e. jUnit test fail and I get some
warnings!
- switching from ant 1.8 to 1.7.1 made the "includeantruntime" warning go away
- the build file in 'compiler' is looking for 'flexTasks.jar' in the
"ant/lib" directory of the SDK which, on my machine at least, does not
exist; changing all references to "ant/lib" to "lib" (3x), where that
jar does exist, makes the last warning go away;
- I created a JIRA ticket [1] and attached the output of 'ant main'
(after an 'ant wipe') to it.

Now, if these tests need to pass on my system before I can start
contributing, I need some input. If solving the reason why they fail
is some sort of initiation rite, it's going to take me a bit more time
to get into the 'inner circle' ;-)
