Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Vaibhav Shah
Hello,

*Currently working code:*

I am able to build a flex project using flexmojos-maven-plugin successfully.
However, I can only provide one 'sourceFile' under my plugin configuration.
Refer below my working pom.xml, which builds Main.mxml file correctly from
'src' directory. It generates the 'swf' file for Main.mxml successfully:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0

                </dependencies>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>

    </build>

</project>

*Problem description:*

Now I have got multiple other mxml application files under my 'src'
directory, i.e. all mxml files under one single 'src' directory. How do I
add them in above plugin, which only expects one single name in sourceFile
configuration?

*Things I have tried:*

I tried copy-pasting multiple blocks of flexmojos-maven-plugin, and each of
them having different sourceFile specified. However, that does not help,
because maven just generates the final 'swf' file from the last block of
flexmojos-maven-plugin. For eg. if first plugin block has sourceFile
Main.mxml, and second plugin block has sourceFile Secondary1.mxml, then the
'swf' will be generated for Secondary1.mxml only, not for Main.mxml.

Also, I have tried adding following moduleFiles tag after the sourceFile
tag:

<moduleFiles>
     <module>Secondary1.mxml</module>
     <module>Secondary2.mxml</module>
     <module>Secondary3.mxml</module>
</moduleFiles>

Above generates total 4 swf files: one for the Main.mxml specified as
'sourceFile', and 3 others for the Secondary mxml files specified under
moduleFiles. However, only the swf generated for the Main.mxml actually
works, and it has proper ~1mb size. Whereas, rest of the 3 swf files
generated for moduleFiles are 100-200kb in size, and they are not opening in
browser.

*Help needed:*
I have googed and posted my question on StackOverflow too, but no luck yet.
Could you please provide any other suggestions to generate correct
individual swf files for respective mxml files using single pom/maven build?

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Christofer Dutz
Hi Vaibhav,

If you are building an swf there can only be one source mxml as this is what's used when you execute the application.
In SWF you have a single source file and the flex compiler adds all mxml and as classes that are directly and indirectly referenced from that.
You could add an additional MXML or AS class and simply reference Main, Secondary1, Secondary2 and Secondary3 from that file.

But to me it looks as if you are trying to compile a library. In that case you should remove the sourceFile config option and change the packaging to swc instead of swf. This will create a library that contains all classes - but is not an executable SWF anymore.

If it's not a library, could you please explain why you want to have multiple sourceFiles? Which effect are you expecting?

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Vaibhav Shah
Hello Christopher,

Thanks for prompt and detailed response.

Actually I am given some existing legacy Flex project to migrate it to
Maven. So I have just completed that migration using the pom.xml mentioned
in my original post. However, I see in the code that there are total 3 mxml
files under 'src' directory, which have
'<mx:Application>...</mx:Application>' defined. That means, all 3 of them
are individual flex applications (I am assuming this based on syntax because
I am a java person, and new to flex - just working on this for migration to
maven part only).

Also, when I open the same project in Flex Builder and compile it, then
there are total 3 swf files generated, one for each of the mxml file having
<mx:Application> tag.

I want the same effect in the flex-maven project too, i.e. when I build flex
project using the flexmojos-maven-plugin, there should be 3 SWF files
created, one for each mxml file having <mx:Application> tag. Is that anyhow
possible?

P.S. As mentioned in the original post, I tried duplicating the same plugin
configuration with different 'mxml' names in sourceFile tags. I expected 3
different SWF files to be generated that way. On the contrary, maven just
executed the last instance of the flexmojos-maven-plugin specified in pom,
not all 3 of them.

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Vaibhav Shah
Hello Christopher,

I realized that I need to use the <executions> in order to specify multiple
executions of the same plugin. So I have updated the flexmojos-maven-plugin
this way now, where each execution should compile a different sourceFile (so
I can compile 3 sourceFiles with 3 executions):

<plugin>
                <groupId>org.sonatype.flexmojos</groupId>
                <artifactId>flexmojos-maven-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.8</version>
                <extensions>true</extensions>
                <executions>
                    <execution>
                        <id>Build1</id>
                        <configuration>
                            <sourceFile>File1.mxml</sourceFile>
                            <debug>true</debug>
                            <output>File1.swf</output>
                        </configuration>
                        <goals>
                            <goal>compile-swf</goal>
                        </goals>
                    </execution>
                    <execution>
                        <id>Build2</id>
                        <configuration>
                            <sourceFile>File2.mxml</sourceFile>
                            <debug>true</debug>
                            <output>File2.swf</output>

                        <type>pom</type>
                    </dependency>
                </dependencies>
            </plugin>

However, while running the maven build with above in my pom, it gives
following error:

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Vaibhav Shah
Hello Christopher,

I have found a solution, rather a hack, to the problem mentioned in last
post.

Solution: you need to specify the flexmojos-maven-plugin twice in the
pom.xml. In first instance, you specify any of the main application mxml as
sourceFile. In the second instance, you specify all the main application
mxmls as sourceFile in respective <execution> tags. This makes it work
somehow, and I now get all 3 swf files generated successfully from their
respective mxml files. Here is the complete working pom.xml for reference:

I still don't understand how come above hack works, and it doesn't work
without the dummy plugin definition. However, it serves my purpose as of
now. :)

Thanks again for prompt response. Appreciate your time and inputs. Hope
above helps someone.

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Christofer Dutz
Hi Vaibhav,

your first compilation (the one you are defining in the first plugin definition)
also has an implicit execution id. You should be able to see it in the console when the first compilation is done.

So you should be able to use just one plugin definition with 4 executions as long as the id of the fourth execution matches the default.
"default-compile-swf"

Then it should work with only one plugin definition.

However I can't explain, why it didn't work with the modules. But I also have to admit that I never really used that feature as it's a maven habit
Of having only one artifact per module, which doesn't fit well with the modules concept.

    Hello Christopher,

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Maxim Solodovnik
I was able to implement this by creating multiple blocks like
[compile, rename]
mapped to the different Maven phases ....

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Vaibhav Shah
Hello Christopher,

Thanks a lot for response and the valuable information about
'default-compile-swf' ID.

I have tried the same, and it works like a charm! As long as any one of the
executions have the ID as 'default-compile-swf', all the executions are
processed correctly (without the dummy plugin declaration) by maven and I
get their output as well.

I never would have thought that the ID of the execution would make such a
difference! Just out of curiosity: is it the flexmojos-maven-plugin specific
behavior defined such that it executes correctly for specific ID? Or is it a
generic behavior of all maven plugins?

Regarding the modules, I agree with you. Ideally the apps should have been
in different modules, but don't know who developed this years ago and why
they didn't think about it :D

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Vaibhav Shah
One more observation and its solution:

Default behaviour: the flexmojos-maven-plugin tries to generate the flex
compiler configuration file via the plugin goal generate-config-swf whenever
the pom.xml changes.

Problematic scenario: if your pom.xml has only the plugin declarations with
'executions' in it, then the above goal fails with following error:
/java.lang.RuntimeException:
org.apache.maven.lifecycle.LifecycleExecutionException: Failed to execute
goal org.sonatype.flexmojos:flexmojos-maven-plugin:3.8:generate-config-swf
(default-cli) on project TreasuryAgreements-UI: Source file not expecified
and no default found!/

Solution: need to add one dummy plugin declaration without 'executions' as
mentioned above for similar error. After that, the error no longer appears
and the config file is generated correctly.

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Christofer Dutz
In reply to this post by Vaibhav Shah
Hi Vaibhav,

every plugin that is executed during the build is performed in an "execution" and every execution has an "id".
If a plugin is added via "packaging" or binds to default phases, this execution is defined by the plugin developer. So YES the Id is defined by the flexmojos developer, but this is a totally normal thing for every maven plugin.

Take this output from another maven build, I just ran:

[INFO] --- download-maven-plugin:1.4.0:wget (get-fontawesome) @ plclogger ---
[INFO] Got from cache: /Users/christofer.dutz/Maven-Repository/.cache/download-maven-plugin/font-awesome-4.7.0.zip_df252855391c0a4f40161f9b242d95c8
[INFO]

[INFO] configuring report plugin org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-surefire-report-plugin:2.20.1

You can see in the "--" lines ... the first executes the wget goal of the download-maven-plugin and the execution id is "get-fontawesome".
The second is the copy-resources goal of the maven-resources-plugin and the execution is called "copy-site-resources" ... and so on ...

I did notice however, that you are using an insanely old version of Flexmojos ... the current version is 7.1.1 ...
And I am the one responsible for everything that happened beyond 5.x.

Your last problem reported is not a Maven problem, but a IDE integration problem. I would assume you are using IntelliJ?
Here the version bundled is probably newer than the maven version Flexmojos 3.8 is able to run with.

Re: Configure multiple source mxml files to generate multiple swf files

Vaibhav Shah
This post was updated on .
Hello Christofer,

Thanks for your response.

Yes, I am using IntelliJ, how you guessed it? :) Default bundled maven is 3.3.9 in it.

The reason why I am using older version 3.8 of flexmojos is because there are few issues noticed while I was using the version 7.1.0. I tried addressing most of them, but for that I had to use the Flex 4 SDK eventually. It wasn't working with Flex 3 SDK. (Also, I had to use maven 3.2.5 with it, and it wasn't working with maven 3.3.9. Refer this link where I saw similar problem happening with others too.)

The last problem which I was facing with flexmojos-maven-plugin 7.1.0 and Flex SDK 4.6.0.23201 was that the SDK 4 had couple of new interfaces introduced, eg. INavigatorContent. These interfaces were not implemented anywhere, or they required some sort of modification in existing code. (One sample error was like this: Error: The children of Halo navigators must implement INavigatorContent.). Hence, I switched to older version where the new interfaces related errors disappeared and I could build project without any modifications in code.
