Working in release mgmt, one of my many jobs is to ensure that we can reliably reproduce
what will be delivered to a customer.
We are using flexbuilder3 in a windows/maven development environment.
I check out the code from svn and run mvn clean install. This generates
a war file that contains swf files among other things.
I move that war file aside and run mvn clean install a second time.
When I compare the 2 wars, I see that the swf files are different in the 2 versions.
As swf files are binary it is extremely difficult to determine if the only difference
between the 2 is timestamps.
My initial guess is that this is related to something i see in the maven output from flex "-metadata.date dd-mmm-yyyy".
What can I do to eliminate these differences?
Usual apologies if this is a newbie thing.
It doesn't seem a newbie question at all, try asking in Maven forums as
well, hopefully you'll find your answer in one of the two forums.
