Updating your HFCD Installation

with 2 comments

I updated this morning. The update fixed two issues:

  1. ‘clean builds’ did not clean cache files properly.
  2. distributed gc on the server side did not clear all the obsolete BuilderApplication objects.

Updating your HFCD installation is easy.

  1. Download
  2. Unzip your new to a new directory.
  3. Copy all the files in the new directory to your existing HFCD installation.
  4. Run ‘ant patch’.

  1. Hey Clement,

    This is pretty cool stuff. I am playing with it but not much success. Here is the error log from Eclipse: /Users/mthein/code/mywidget/src/PurchaseSummary.mxml
    at hellfire.compiler.client.BuilderApplicationStub.init(

    [Clement: part of the stacktrace removed…]

    File actually exist. And it compiles fine if I switch to normal sdk. Also is there any way I could hook this up with command line (or ant) mxmlc target stuff?

    • Hi Myo, Thanks for testing HFCD. Did you close your projects and reopen them? Reopening the projects makes the HFCD plugin transfer your project source files to the HFCD server. The HFCD server then keeps the files in a different location in the file system and compile from that location. The plugin automatically keeps both locations synchronized.

      I’m a little behind on producing the documentation. I hope to get some doc ready tonight. Sorry about that.
