Subject Re: [Falcon] Unit tests failing
Date Sat, 08 Dec 2012 00:00:12 GMT
I'm not sure the problem is in JUnit but in all the stuff the tests are
triggering behind.

What Michael proposed (which indeed works) is to append the arguments to
any launch configuration created for any test which would be a total
nightmare and quite impossible to maintain.

As Gordon says, it works fine if the sdk is copied relative to the tests as
was before. If it isn't, such as it's happening now, somewhere along the
line FLEX_HOME and PLAYERGLOBAL_HOME need to be read. The problem is that
when you launch a program in Mac it doesn't get passed your environment, so
it ignores whatever is you have on ~/.profile

No doubt it's easier to just copy the sdk but if for some reason you don't
want to, or want to make it optional, then I don't know if there's another
way.
