Hi Christofer,

I would certainly not claim to be an expert in the matter, but I have
gathered quite some knowledge by contributing to GradleFx ( Much like FlexMojos is a Maven plugin for compiling
Flex apps, GradleFx is a Gradle ( plugin to achieve the
same goal.

It's open-source, so you're welcome to take a look at how we implemented
things. I guess you would especially be interested in the org.gradlefx.cli
package (
We used Gradle's built-in ANT task executor to execute the compile command
through Flex's own ANT task.

The CommandLine Interface wrapping is fairly complete, but there are two
things still missing:
- module support (see
- full AIR/mobile support (only partially implemented, also see

Feel free to ask questions if you think we can be of assistance.
