    FlashBuilder NullPointerException while building (invoking Compiler)

    itnix

      Hello.

      I've a problem building project, which is a AS3 library project.

      The error I got in eclipse log is:

       

       

      !ENTRY org.eclipse.core.resources 4 75 2014-04-14 10:14:33.378
      !MESSAGE Errors occurred during the build.
      !SUBENTRY 1 com.adobe.flexbuilder.project 4 75 2014-04-14 10:14:33.378
      !MESSAGE Errors running builder 'Compiler' on project 'MyProjectName'.
      !STACK 0
      java.lang.NullPointerException

      I keep wondering how is that possible anyway, meaning for such an expensive product to be still that buggy?!

      NPE means someone saved him self some time not checking if something was null and displaying a proper message in eclipse, which could help me solve the problem (if in .project or .actionScriptProperties or .flexLibProperties for example).

      The point of using expensive software when building our software is to work! I guess I've any right to a good explanation, thou I don't beleave that's what I will get.

       

      Version details:

      Adobe Flash Builder 4.7
      Version: 4.7.0.349722
      

       

      PS: Flash Builder got a lots of problems (serious bugs). Thou nobody from adobe talks about them. Cleaning projects crashes almost every time, very often the compiling process brings "Internal error"... Are you guys capable of writing software? Meaning working software - I'll clarify for you 'cause obviously you are not familiar with the term "working software" - means everything works as expected. Because of your lack of skill I waste huge amounts of time restarting your half-written software so it could at least compile once.. then restart again the whole thing. Very useful for business. Educate your self before selling your sh!t to the people, you crooks!
