Subject Re: [Falcon] Unit tests failing

The copy.sdk target is still in there if you need it.

But first, wow do you use the unit tests from Eclipse?  I've never tried it,
I always use the command line.  Do you set up a run config of some sort?  If
you set a FLEX_HOME in the config's environment does that work?

Once I understand how you use Eclipse I will try to get it to work.
