Perfoce read-only vs Flex/Flash Compiling

Hi,

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.

Thanks

Just wondering, why do you keep output files in VCS? Usually only source files are kept.

Hi,

I've repported the issue in your bug tracker.

As for your question about keeping output files in the VCS, we are still thinking about the best/fastest development pipelines for our project needs.

Thanks
