Flex Module for Apache and IIS on Labs

We’re pleased to announce the Labs availability of the Flex Module for Apache and IIS. This provides web-tier compilation of MXML and ActionScript files on Apache and IIS web servers. It means that you can rapidly compile and test a Flex application by simply requesting the main application file from a web browser, similar to working with server-side scripting languages like PHP, ColdFusion, JSP, or ASP.

This module installs directly into the Apache web server or IIS, you do not need Tomcat or another J2EE server for this functionality. It runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux; and the only other thing you need is a JRE.

Please note that this is not an implementation of FDS, it is only for MXML/AS compilation.

Go to Labs and check it out!

    I got the apache module working before with flex version 2 sdk, but with the upgrade to 3.2 I’m getting errors about licenses.An error occured on the server. Server error is: ‘Error occurred in server thread; nested exception is: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: flex.license.License.(Ljava/util/Map;Ljava/lang/String;Lflex/license/Logger;)V’I can compile to swf using commandline but it appears there’s something in the apache module.

    Hi,The doc page says it is using Flex 2.01 SDK. Is there any way to interface it with the Moxie SDK? Or is there any separate module you guys are developing for that?Please advice.Thanks.

    Can we please please get a wildcard feature in for the compiler task? Unless I am mistaken you currently have to specify _every_ single mxml file you want compiled with a new entry. The java ant task lets you specify a wild card and an output directory and it gets on with it.
