2 new Flex utilities on Labs

We’ve placed 2 new utilities on Labs this afternoon.

First, some Flex Ant tasks which should be useful to everyone who does command-line or automated building of Flex applications (source is included). Second, the Flex Compiler Shell (FCSH) which s very useful for those not using Flex Builder to compile their apps on a regular basis.

You can get lots more info on the Labs pages. We hope you find these useful and feel free to send feedback!

ETA: A special note of thanks should go to Summer ’06 intern Spiros Eliopoulos who did the majority of the work on the Ant tasks. Spiros, you rule!

    The discussion on the labs page itself might have some answers.

    downloaded the Flextasks.jar from the labs site. I copied the .jar to my Ant/1.6.5/lib directory and rebooted my computer. Then I created the build.xml file below. I get the error “Command not found: mxmlc”. At first I didnt think Ant understood the tag but when I added some properties to the tag I received messages that the mxmlc tag didnt support this property.So I think the issue is that the mxmlc.exe compiler is not being found. Its installed at C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 2\Flex SDK 2\bin\ so I figured the “FLEX_ROOT” would help find this. If anyone could offer suggestions I would appreciate it.

    This is something that we’re working on but it won’t be available in the short-term. Sorry!

    Glad you guy’s finally produced your own ANT tasks. I wasn’t probably going to update my flex2ant.org project anytime soon and your tasks look a lot more comprehensive.Congrats!
