We are currently looking into using Intellij IDEA as our main IDE for Flex/Flash project, but we hit a bump.
Our VCS is Perforce. As you may know, it use read-only mode on any file that aren't checked out.
Here's our problem:
- IntelliJ IDEA offer to check-out the files while we are editing them (this is working fine).
- Compiling using the Built-In compiler doesn't error out, but the target file (which isn't writable because of Perforce) doesnt change.
- Compiling using MXMLC/COMPC does error out with a read-only issue.
The expected behavior would be to ask the user to check-out the target (compiled) files.
For now we changed the filetype to always writable in perforce, but it's not the best solution.
We'd like to know if you have a better solution.
