I have a folder where I keep all of my as3 classes ... I call it "AS3_classes" ...
inside of it I have:
/components ... which has .fla files in it and jpgs, etc
because I want access to my classes inside of pkg_shannon, I must add "AS3_classes" as a source path ... nothing unusual ... except eclipse/flashbuilder is taking everything from "AS3_classes" and copying it to my bin-debug folder ( though it is not copying the .as files ).
from a flash point of view, source_path ( classpath ) is only for compile-time ... not run time;
but eclipse seems to think that source_path means:
1 - is for compile time ( the .as classes )
2 - is for runtime ( all of the other stuff located at "AS3_classes"
any way to prevent this behavior?
Try this: uncheck "Copy non-embedded files to the output folder" in Project properties -> Flex/ActionScript Compiler
