Subject Re: Substitutes in Apache Royale
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2018 16:24:57 GMT
Flex and Flash classes are not in the Royale ASDoc JSON files, but I don't see any reason you
couldn't run the Royale ASDoc tools on the Flex SDK and get JSON files.  Also, there are DITA
XML files for Flex SDK you could use instead, and DITA XML files for Flash.

The compiler is just another application.    Designing a compiler might take special knowledge,
but it has already been designed.   The changes you want to make are just like lots of other
changes made to the framework.  Look at past commits, find the relevant file.  Make some changes,
see what happens.

My 2 cents,
-Alex

Subject: Re: Substitutes in Apache Royale

You’re right. I should learn the compiler. Part of what I had wanted to do had we gotten
together while I was in the States was exactly that… I need to find the time necessary to
invest in that.

Flex and Flash APIs are not in ASDoc JSON files unless I’m missing something.

As far as the value of the dummy classes: Yes. There were a lot of elf classes, but there
were lots of other classes used in both view and model.

Here’s the list of classes I was left with when the app compiled with both view and model
for the first time. This was *AFTER* we spent a lot of work getting rid of most dependencies
on Flash classes. The list does not include the tlf classes.

Also, read the entire thread.  I suggested getting the type information from the ASDoc JSON
files.  Then you can avoid learning the compiler.

Yup. I’d be happy to work on a tool which creates stubs, but we’re going to need the type
info on properties and methods in order to do that properly.

I don’t know how to add that to the report you created. I’m not sure where to get the
type data of packages outside Royale other than the declared types in the source code.

Subject: RE: Substitutes in Apache Royale

The stubs were useful to have the app compile and to test functionality. Once there’s an
app running, albeit with runtime errors, you can incrementally implement the missing parts.

We were thinking that the report, if providing a complete description, could be parsed by
an automation tool which would create these stubs.

What did the stub classes do?  I suppose you could add signatures to the report, but you could
also find the signature in the source or ASDoc.

The numbers represent the number of times the API was resolved to a definition, which is,
at least for now,  not 1:1 related to how often it was seen in the code, but sort of gives
a relative measure of how often that API was used compared to other APIs of that type.  IOW,
there are two kinds of APIs in the HelloWorld report:  Classes and properties.    Classes
seem to get resolved multiple times per use.  Properties seem to get resolved once per use.
 At least in an example this simple.

IMO, it is inefficient for the compiler to resolve things more than once per use, so that
points to a possible place to speed up the compiler some day.

This is pretty cool. If we had the method signatures we could use this report as a source
for a utility that creates stub classes. That’s a step we performed manually (with some
help from FB) when porting our app. BTW, what are the numbers at the end of the line?

OK, I've implemented the first attempt at an API report.  Get the latest -bin–js-swf package
from here:

Follow the instructions in my prior post below.

If you get a successful compile, then try it again and add an additional compiler option:
-api–report=<path to output file>

The output file should look something like this:

Flex46Project:foo,14
mx.collections.ArrayCollection,13
mx.collections.ArrayCollection:sort,4
mx.collections.Sort,11
mx.controls.Label:text,1
spark.components.Application:minHeight,1
spark.components.Application:minWidth,1
spark.components.Application:mxmlContentFactory,2

That was for a hello world.  I expect a much longer list for a real app.  Your code will be
listed as well so you may wish to delete those lines before posting the results for us to
see.  Attachments don't always work on these mailing lists so post a link to the report stored
on some service like pastebin or paste.apache.org<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fpaste.apache.org&data=02%7C01%7Caharui%40adobe.com%7C6bb7255401eb475b9cfa08d57906fec2%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636547993320757598&sdata=ommking1aiMpfquXxRDpe%2FGML9RsehYhxtPR7Gk03Rs%3D&reserved=0>
or dropbox or create a GitHub issue and post it there.

Again, this is a first attempt at an API report, so before we put any faith in it, it would
help if you think about your code a bit and whether anything might be missing.

Subject: Re: Substitutes in Apache Royale

In fact, I went and tried it just now to build a Flex Hello World.

I had Apache Flex 4.16.0 installed in /Users/aharui/ApacheFlex4.16.0.  Then I:

- took the apache-royale-0.9.1-bin-js-swf package from [1]  (you must use the bin-js-swf and
not just bin-js).
- unzipped the package
- ran in the package's royale-asjs folder: ant –f InstallAdobeSDKs.xml

That results in a working Royale SDK with SWF Support.

Then I ran from the royale-asjs folder:

  bin/mxmlc <path to app's .mxml file> -load-config=/Users/aharui/ApacheFlex4.16.0/frameworks/flex-config.xml

The compile finished successfully.  I think I'm going to work on the API report now and deal
with the * selector after.  If you can get a SWF build via this technique, this is the technique
you will use to generate the API report.

Thanks,
-Alex

Sorry, just realized I referenced the JS compiler.  Please try using bin/compc and bin/mxmlc.

Subject: Re: Substitutes in Apache Royale

Hi Alina,

Piotr might be better at helping you use Moonshine.  The IDEs sort of expect that the libraries/SWCs
that your code needs is in the same folder as the compiler.  That's why it might be easier
to work from the command line.

I remembered this morning that the Royale SWF Compiler doesn't have embedded font support.
 However the goal isn't so much to make a runnable SWF but to have the compilation and linking
complete so we can determine the full set of Flex APIs used in your app.

If your code has two projects, then we will want you to compile both projects with the Royale
compiler and get two API reports.  The Library project would be compiled with js/bin/compc
and the main app would be compiled with js/bin/mxmlc.

I think you will want to use the compiler option:
   -load-config="path to a Flex SDK flex-config.xml"
and also use
  –compiler.targets=SWF

HTH,
-Alex

Hi Alina,

What I'm asking is that you take your original code without porting it at all and run the
Royale Compiler's SWF compiler.  It should be able to produce the same SWF you are deploying
now.  It might catch errors that the Flex MXMLC compiler does not catch.  We need a successful
SWF output so we know the compiler visited all APIs.  Once you can get a SWF out, then later
I will provide you with an updated Royale SWF compiler that will also output an API usage
report.

Hi Alina,

I can't guarantee that you will be in production in six months, but I believe we can help
you get to the point where every screen shows up and fills with data and we are fixing bugs
in corner cases.   We might also be chasing down memory leaks and things like that.    My
strategy for lots of things is to do the big things first and polish it later.  For example,
I recently pushed some basic Virtual Item Renderer support for Royale, but I'm pretty sure
it will have bugs in corner cases, like deleting things when scrolled to the bottom.  But
most apps start at the top and it will get you going and we'll fix those corner cases later.

I want to finish up some infrastructural things in Royale over the next couple of weeks, then
I will adjust the compiler to generate an API report.  Once we see what that looks like, I
 should be able to help take the sample code you provided and make it work in Royale.  So
maybe in a month or so, you'll see more activity around your code.  Right now I need to clean
up a few things so we can be more efficient working with you.

You won't need an IDE to generate the API report.  If you know what compiler settings you
are using for your Flex app, you can just run a Royale compiler from the command-line with
the same arguments.  I believe that we are likely to make compiling your Flex app with the
Royale compiler one of the steps in migrating. The Royale compiler will catch some syntax
issues that the Flex compiler does not.

More later,

At some places myArrayCollection[0].propertyname  to access it

Currently I am using Visual Studio Code and apache royale 0.9.0 release is installed.I will

Subject: Re: Substitutes in Apache Royale

Hi Alina,

Other than ArrayCollection, that looks right.  There will be sorting classes eventually.

I think there are two buckets of things that you are going to need:

Things we haven't written yet:
  - DividedBox/Container (mostly done)
 - Menu/MenuBar
 - VariableRowHeight
 - Editable DataGrids
 - Sorting?

Things we have written, but aren't packaged in a way that makes migration easy:
 - TitleWindow
 - Canvas
 - ArrayCollection

For ArrayCollection, do you use array indexing (myArrayCollection[0]) or do you access it
as getItemAt(0)?

You have so many files to port, it is tempting to create a Spark-ish and MX-ish component
set.  They wouldn't be fully backward compatible but would try to implement the most commonly
used APIs.  I'm wondering what percentage of Flex APIs you actually used in your app.  If
I modify the Royale compiler, could you try compiling your Flex app with the Royale compiler
and generate a report of APIs used?

Thanks,
-Alex

Subject: Substitutes in Apache Royale

Hi,

I have replaced few imports in Apache Royale Project after comparison in terms of functionality.
As you all are more familiar to Flex and Apache Royale.
Are these correct substitutes?
import org.apache.royale.html.Alert; //instead of import mx.controls.Alert;
import org.apache.royale.events.CloseEvent; // instead of import mx.events.CloseEvent;
import org.apache.royale.net.events.FaultEvent; // instead of import mx.rpc.events.FaultEvent;
import org.apache.royale.net.events.ResultEvent; //instead of import mx.rpc.events.ResultEvent;
import mx.collections.ArrayCollection; //very similar to org.apache.royale.collections.TreeData
import mx.collections.Sort; // No Alternate found
import mx.collections.SortField;// No Alternate found
import mx.managers.PopUpManager; //org.apache.royale.core.IPopUp or .IPopUpHost
import org.apache.royale.utils.StringUtil;// instead of import mx.utils.StringUtil;
