Subject [POLL] Maven and Apache Flex
Date Tue, 27 Nov 2012 18:46:02 GMT
Hi Folks,

There have been some recent discussions about Maven and how it could work
with Apache Flex.  There are several possibilities, but none of them are
perfect because of Adobe licensing requirements.  This poll is only about
how you use or plan to use Apache Flex and Maven to build apps that use an
Adobe runtime (Adobe Flash Player or Adobe AIR including Adobe AIR packaged
for Android or IOS).  We┬╣ll worry about other Apache Flex scenarios in the
future.  This poll also assumes that the Adobe will not change its SDK
licensing and requires that you accept the licensing terms at least once.

Also, you can substitute the word "Maven" for any Maven-like tool that uses
Maven files.

Please answer the following:

1. Number of people who will use Maven to develop Flex apps at your company
(0 if you have no interest in using Maven).

2. Maven would be used to develop apps for FlashPlayer in the browser (yes
or no)

3. Maven would be used to develop apps for AIR on desktop/laptops (yes or
no)

4. Maven would be used to develop apps for AIR on Android (yes or no)

5. Maven would be used to develop apps for AIR on IOS (yes or no)

6. Rate the following proposed implementations (-1 = not acceptable, 0 =
neutral, 1 = acceptable, 2 = preferred)
    a) You must manually download the Player SDK and AIR SDK from the Adobe
       site and set up environment variables pointing to them
    b) You must download and install a Maven plug-in from the Apache Flex
       site.  The first time you use Maven on a computer, it will ask you
       to accept the Adobe license agreement.
    c) You must download and install a Maven plug-in from the Adobe
       site.  The first time you use Maven on a computer, it will ask you
       to accept the Adobe license agreement.
    d) Maven can be used as-is for FlashPlayer apps and AIR apps on
       desktops/laptops, but not for AIR apps on Android/IOS.  To target
       Android/IOS, you must use one of the first three implementations
    e) We will manually download the Player SDKs and AIR SDKs and put them
       in our local/private Maven repo.
    f) We would use a utility application that would download the Player
       SDKs and AIR SDKs (prompting you to accept the license) and put them
       in our local/private Maven repo.

Thanks in advance.  Remember that polls are not binding, but your input is
much appreciated.
