    stepping through the code

    bkhatl Level 1

      Using Eclipse, latest build, on a Mac, I'm stepping through the FlexPMD code.  I enter in the debug configuration the parameters "-s <src dir>" and "-o <output dir>".  Those arguments are successfully passed into FlexPMD but when the FileUtils tries to locate the Flex source files, I have some ActionScript, *.as, files in the <src dir>, I get an error:

      Exception in thread "main" net.sourceforge.pmd.PMDException: sourceDirectory does not contain any Flex sources (Specify the source directory in relative (not absolute))

          at com.adobe.ac.pmd.commandline.FlexPMD.main(FlexPMD.java:69)


      Since the 'args' parameter in the main function is getting the '-s' and '<src dir>' parameters, I'm not sure what is it complaining.  I don't see anything in the source code what those parameters are being discarded.


      Any ideas?

          Hi Brenda!


          I don't think I understood your problem.


          The error you mentioned means that the source folder you specified does not contain any Flex source files (*.as, *.mxml)


          Are you saying that you have a folder with Flex source files, and that those files are not picked up by FlexPMD?


          Any FlexPMD clients (command-line, Maven, Ant, ...) are using AbstractFlexPmdEngine which uses the class FlexPmdParameters


          I don't see any reasons why your source folder would be discarded.
