HFCD zip Arhives for Ant Lovers

Some developers don’t use Flex Builder and wonder how they can use HFCD from the command line or with their favorite Flex IDEs.

I have just made some HFCD zip archives available:

http://bytecode-workshop.com/hfcd/3/download/hfcd_3.2.0_full.zip
http://bytecode-workshop.com/hfcd/3/download/hfcd_3.3.0_full.zip
http://bytecode-workshop.com/hfcd/3/download/hfcd_3.4.1_full.zip
http://bytecode-workshop.com/hfcd/3/download/hfcd_3.5.0_full.zip
http://bytecode-workshop.com/hfcd/4/download/hfcd_4.0.0_full.zip
http://bytecode-workshop.com/hfcd/4/download/hfcd_4.1.0_full.zip

You don’t have to download all of them… just pick the version that you intend to use.

Unzip the archive. You’ll find a build.xml inside. Edit ${flex.sdk.dir} to point to your corresponding Flex SDK installation directory. Run ant. After running build.xml, you should see the HFCD “client” directory and HFCD “server” directory.

You start HFCD by running server/bin/hfcd. If you want to use ant to call HFCD, use client/lib/hfcd-ant-tasks.jar. For more information on how to use the HFCD ant tasks, please check out the HFCD ant task language reference:

Some developers want to see Maven/Flexmojos support. I like that idea too and I’m going to investigate. Stay tuned.
