Creating Flex Modules with IntelliJ

Hi all,

I am just trying to create a Flex module (not a IntelliJ module, but a mx:Module as described on Such a Module must be compiled to a SWF just like an application, so I choose 'Application' as Output Type. However Idea seems to assume that there must be an MXML component that inherits from mx:Application. I cannot choose the Module as Application Entry Point and therefore I am unable to compile it using the IDE builder without a custom compiler configuration file.

Will I have to provide such a configuration file in order to compile a module or is there an easier way?

Best regards,

may choose any class by clicking at "Choose another class as entry
point" link. I recommend you to download latest IntelliJ IDEA EAP from
