flex on 8.0M1: development cycle same as with 7.x?

Hi,

I am trying to get flex running on 8.0M1, is it the same procedure as with 7.x (see http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/docs/Creating_Flex_Applications_with_IntelliJ_IDEA.pdf) or are there less or different steps involved? There are some threads about this already but they don't answer this question exactly.

I guess IntelliJ can handle direct ActionScript coding also (action-script is the compile target of flex)?

thanks.

hi again,

I managed to setup Flex like described in link. What does not work is the Debug mode. When going to ->]]>'Debug Flex' the application starts and debug-window is shown but my breakpoints (inside Application.mxml and Greeter.as) are ignored.

Maybe it is the wrong version of flash plugin in mozilla firefox (plugin version tells Shockwave flash 9.0 r115)? Is to old for proper debugging (though adobe site told me to get a 9.0 version)?

thanks.

OK, I followed Adobe instructions (http://www.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/flex/3/releasenotes_flex3_sdk.html#installation) deinstalled flash and installed the provided flash player from the flex-SDK. Never the less when doing 'Debug Flex' in intellij application hangs (even with no breakpoints).

Further more my setting:
testAppPath=c:/Programme/Flex3.0/runtimes/player/win/FlashPlayer.exe

gets ignored and firefox is openened (though when doing Ant->Run it opens the currect flash player).

Has anybody succeeded to debug through intellij8.0M1 and Flex??

hi,

to avoid firefox problems I used:
testAppPath=c:/Programme/Flex3.0/runtimes/player/win/FlashPlayer.exe
but intellij is ignoring this setting.

I am using Intellij8.0M1 build 8664, is there a newer EAP version? where do I find it?
