Ant build for flex 4 / flash builder 4?

I just grabbed the latest SparkWeb from SVN. I need to build the SparkWebCore.swc for my project which I’m moving from flex3.5 to flex4.

If I try to run my app with the SparkWebCore that is compiled with flex3x. I get the error:

13:29:19.782 [INFO] OUTGOING:

<quTypeError: Error #1006: getResourceBundle is not a function.

at com.jivesoftware.spark.managers::Localizator()[/Users/jimc/prj/sparkweb/sparkwe b/SparkWebCore/com/jivesoftware/spark/managers/Localizator.as:28]

So… I checked out from svn here: svn co http://svn.igniterealtime.org/svn/repos/sparkweb/trunk/

I edited build/build.xml and set my FLEX_HOME like so: /Applications/Adobe Flash Builder 4/sdks/4.0.0

I run ‘ant sparkweb’ and it can’t find the Message class from XIFF:

[mxmlc] /Users/jimc/tmp/sparkweb/SparkWebCommonComponents/com/jivesoftware/spark/events /NotifyEvent.as(34): col: 41 Error: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: Message.

[mxmlc]

[mxmlc] public function set message(inMessage:Message):void {

I am able to build XIFF.swc using the xiff svn. I see that xiff is right in the sparkweb project too, so it shouldn’t have any trouble finding it… you would think. hmmm…

Has anyone built SparkWebCore and related with flex4?

Hi Jim,

I just ran into the same issue. Attached is a patch for Localizator.as that should fix it.

However, after fixing the Localizator, I had to fix a number of other issues. Right now I have it compiling and running, but the styles are a mess. If I get everything sorted out I’ll check out a fresh copy from svn and try to put together a full Flex 3 -> Flex 4 migration patch for SparkWeb.
