HFCD Ant Tasks Outperform Adobe Flex Ant Tasks…

with 2 comments

I’ve just produced some performance benchmark for HFCD Ant tasks and would like to share one test result with you.

There is a build.xml file in the Flex SDK/frameworks directory. Developers can use this build.xml to build the Flex framework:

  • flex.swc
  • framework.swc
  • framework_rb.swc
  • airframework.swc
  • airframework_rb.swc
  • rpc.swc
  • rpc_rb.swc
  • haloclassic.swc
  • utilities.swc

This build.xml file uses the Flex <compc> ant task to build the SWCs. On my MacBookPro, it takes 52 seconds to build. Here is the screenshot:

Then I rewrite this file using the HFCD <library> ant task. On the same machine, it takes 25 seconds to build. It’s 2X faster than the Adobe Flex ant tasks.
