    Help with mxmlc ant task

    kkfong

      First of all, I am brand new to Flex, so I might ask something that doesn't make sense at all.  If that's the case, please forgive me

       

      I am trying to write an ANT script that'll compile .mxml file into .swf, and I think I can use mxmlc ANT task for this

       

      Let's say we have

      src\a\b\c\file1.mxml

      src\a\b\c\file2.mxml

      Let's say output is in bin

       

      Can I write one ant mxmlc task that'll compile both files, and generate

      bin\a\b\c\file1.swf

      bin\a\b\c\file2.swf

       

      In essence, I am looking for something similar to javac ANT tasks, where I just specify a source directroy, and an output directory, and javac task will do everything else

       

      In this example, I have only 2 mxml file

      In the project that I am working on, I need to compile 90+ mxml files, and create 90+ swf files.  I sure hope I don't need 90+ mxmlc tasks, one for each mxml...

       

      Note that I am a release engineer who is trying to create ANT script.  It's the actual developer who wrote all these mxml files, so I don't know why we need 90+ swf files

       

      They get these 90+ swf files by building from FlexBuilder GUI.  I am simply trying to mirror what the GUI is doing in ANT

       

      Thanks!
