    Attaching the debugger from Ant

    richard.szalay

      We have a large project with a considerable compilation time (1+ minutes usually) and I'm looking into ways of decreasing the compilation time when running individual unit tests (see this post).

       

      Is it possible to attach the FlashBuilder debugger through ant? My thinking is that I can generate an MXML file from a template and reference a specific class and then attach the debugger to the compiled SWF

          Unless Eclipse's debug/launch infrastructure is exposed to ant, I'm not sure how this is possible.

           

          However, using the command line debugger - fdb - should be possible from ant.

           

          Another developer has been trying to get this to work. You need to pass -unit to fdb and create a file called .fdbinit that has debugger commands in it.
