Subject AW: An official mavenized SDK ?
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 17:07:24 GMT
Hi Frederic,

Flexunit 4.1 was officially released by mike a few weeks ago. I helped him find out which
packages were actually needed (initially one build would have been made for each fdk, but
we were able to strip it down to 3 versions ... "as3", "flex3" and "flex4". I then published
the artifacts in the sonatype repo for him and they are now publically available as Maven
artifacts ( ... notice
the change to "org.flexunit" in the gid).

In Flexmojos there were a few issues regarding parameterized tests. On the mailing list someone
published a hack but I think that solved one problem and caused others. So I refactored quite
a bit in the Unittest support project of Flexmojos and got everything running. A few days
ago I updated the main Flexmojos trunk with those changes and am now waiting for Velo to release
FM 5.1 (final).

My 6.x branch is a special branch that has the main difference that it operates on a different
FDK structure. This was necessary because Velo usually deployed everything in the Flex FDKs
as one. Unfortunately they are not. Therefore I split up the FDKs into 3 separate parts "Flex
FDK", "Flash Runtime", "Air Runtime". I also did a number of fixes that should make builds
(especially with signed RSLs) a little easier. Unfortunately some of these need me to refactor
Flexmojos a little more. Currently FM6 seems to build my projects nicely, but I have had some
reports with problems and am looking forward to solving them.

My FDK generator is a simple Java program, that you feed with a source and target directory.
You unpack all the FKDs you want mavenized into the source directory and run it. The tool
looks at the config-files in the FDKs and automatically generates Maven artifacts from them.
If Apache doesn't want to start providing the FDKs (Or is not allowed to for legal reasons),
at least Users should be able to generate any FDK version they like in about 1 Minute per
FDK :-)

I'll keep you guys posted on my progress. (This is my first day on this list ... I always
thought I was already on it and the list was simply dead ;-) )

Great news Chris you've been able to make it compatible with FU 4.1, btw, does FU 4.1 stand
in an official repo now ? (we putted it manually in our own one).

I'm really interesting by your FDK generator, is it very different than the way I indicated
20install%20maven+page:1+mid:rh3o3dvfberd7l2r+state:results ?

And sorry, I didn't get what you want me to do exactly :P

Hi Frederic,

I recently pushed my flexunit changes back to trunk so Flexmojos 5.x and 6.x should be compatable
with Flexunit 4.1 ... 
If I understand it correctly flexunit 4.2 will the the flexunit version under the hood of
Apache? I guess migrating should be pretty simple. If you could open an issue in
for that and attach a sample project similar to the one in it would make my life a lot easier :-)

Regarding the FDK generator I was working on ... I won't be able to do much this week but
hopefully I will spare some time to continue my work on this in the next 2 weeks. As soon
as I sorted out the issues with that and with Flexmojos 6.x support of them, I will contribute
the code of the generator to Apache Flex ... hopefully the guys will start to publish them,
but at least you should be able to generate your own FDKs then.

Time ago, I indicated a way to mavenized the SDK
20install%20maven+page:1+mid:rh3o3dvfberd7l2r+state:results, is there an official way now

I remember I spoke with Espen few month ago in Paris and he told me he is was in process to
do it, any progress ?

What about FlexMojos 6 and FlexUnit 4.2, any progress to make them work together ?
