Windows script to build an Apache Flex SDK for an IDE such as Adobe FlashBuilder or JetBrains IntelliJ

Carol Frampton
Hi all,

I know there has been a lot of confusion about how to get from the Apache Flex binary kit to be a Flex SDK that you can use with an IDE such as either Adobe FlashBuilder or JetBrains IntelliJ.

I just wrote a script for Windows called constructFlexForIDE.bat, that will pick the files it needs from an Adobe Flex 4.6 SDK and copy them into your Apache SDK.  The script is here [1].  Since all files are local it runs relatively quickly.

Usage: constructFlexForIDE "Apache Flex dir" ["Adobe Flex 4.6 dir"]

If your directory contains spaces it must be quoted properly.

You Apache Flex dir should be an unpackaged Apache Flex binary distribution, or an unpacked Apache Flex source distribution which you've built.

If you don't specify an Adobe Flex 4.6 directory, the script will look for Adobe FlashBuilder in the default installation location and use the Adobe Flex 4.6 SDK from there if it finds it.
  %ProgramFiles%/Adobe/Adobe Flash Builder 4.5/sdks/4.6.0 (where ProgramFiles is your system environment variable)
%ProgramFiles%/Adobe/Adobe Flash Builder 4.6/sdks/4.6.0
%ProgramFiles%/Adobe/Adobe Flash Builder 4.7/sdks/4.6.0

Read the comments at the top of the script for more information.

The Apache Flex binary distribution is available here [2].
The Adobe Flex 4.6 SDK is available here [3].

Feedback, (problems, comments, etc)  is welcome.

Carol
