Subject RE: [Falcon] Unit tests failing
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2012 23:27:56 GMT
After trying and failing to do any Falcon work today, I'll keep complaining about this. The
unit tests are no longer working in Eclipse. I get 

command line
Error: unable to open 'D:\Apache\incubator\flex\falcon\trunk\compiler\generated\dist\sdk\frameworks\mxml-2009-manifest.xml'.

command line
Error: unable to open 'D:\Apache\incubator\flex\falcon\trunk\compiler\generated\dist\sdk\frameworks\libs\player\11.1\playerglobal.swc'.

This is presumably because the SDK is no longer being copied into a place that the unit tests
can find them. The unit tests can't use an environment variable to find them because it is
infeasible to specify that environment every time you want to make an Eclipse debug config
for a particular unit test.

Is there some way to make this work in Eclipse that I don't know about, so that every JUnit
test "just work" without having to customize a run-config or debug-config for it?

If not, I will restore some ant targets to do the SDK copying. Alex may not want to use them,
but I need to.

OK, then I'll stop complaining.

The versions in compiler/commandline already looked for FLEX_HOME environment variable.
