SDK 4.9 vs SDK 4.x compilation time in IDEA

Maurice Amsellem
Hi,

I have made some benchmarks compiling the same project with SDK 4.1 and SDK 4.9 using IDEA (12.0.3).

As you may know, IDEA has a super-fast built-in flex compiler, but unfortunately, it is not (yet?) compatible with SDK 4.9,
so IDEA switches back to compc/mxmlc when SDK 4.9 is selected.

I have filed a ticket on IDEA bug base to ask about that:

http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-100559

In short, compilation time is 2.5 slower with SDK 4.9 with mxmlc/compc than with SDK 4.x with built-in shell.

I know this is not related to SDK 4.9, but mxmlc/compc that is slower than IDEA's built-in compiler shell.
However, do you have any idea why IDEA cannot use its built-in shell with SDK 4.9?
Is it just because it has not been tested yet, or is there a more fundamental reason?

Regards

Maurice

Hi,
IntelliJ IDEA Built-in compiler shell is future-compatible and it
already supports Apache Flex SDK 4.9. To have it working please check
following:
- Uncheck 'Use external build' at Settings/Prefereces | Compiler (this
step won't be needed in IntelliJ IDEA 12.1, see details [1])
- Make sure 'Built-in compiler shell' is checked at Settings/Prefereces
| Compiler | Flex Compiler
- Make sure that all Flash build configurations of all modules use the
same SDK (Project Structure dialog). If there are 2 or more different
SDKs IntelliJ IDEA switches to mxmlc/compc processes.

I'll give some more comments for your issue in YouTrack [2]

I think I got confused by the "Use external build" option, which was probably checked (I don't remember what the default option is with IDEA 12.0.3 ).

Anyway, thank you again for your help.
