I have some extensions built with Flah Builder 4.5 and the CS Extension Builder, that I had to compile via ANT in order to port them to a continuous integration server. (Hudson)
I used the CS SDK 1.5.0. to do so, it includes all CS libraries (i.e. CSXS, CSAW...) except the host adapter libraries CSAR. (cs_host_adapter.swc and id_host_adapter.swc)
I had to extract them from the CS Extension Builder JAR files (not easy to find them...) and to add them to the CS SDK in order to compile the extensions successfully.
Is it supposed to be so, or should they be included in the CS SDK as well?
In the same fashion, my extensions also uses the Flex theme Creative_Suite_CS5 that installs with the CS Extension Builder. I also had to extract the theme file from the JARs in order to compile the extension via ANT. It would be nice if this theme was also part of the CS SDK.
Are these artifacts planned to be added to the CS SDK, or will they remain only in the CS Extension Builder?
Thanks in advance,
I would also like to know if there is an easier way to find these libaries.
I had to do a search through the plugins directory of my FlashBuilder!
Found them here for anyone else that needs them:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.6\eclipse\plugins\com.adobe.cside.libsinstaller_188.8.131.52-33034\archi ve\csar-1.0\release
You can create an extension with Extension Builder, and check "Unpack ZXP into export folder" when export the extension. Then, you can find the Host Adapter libraries in the unpacked zxp foder which is in the same folder of exported ZXP file.
The point that Martin is getting at is that these should be included with the CS SDK. Manually compiling extensions shouldn't involve having to pluck the files from Extension Builder or from a ZXP built with Extension Builder.
