Configure Flex 4

Flex 4 (Gumbo) is having nightly builds. And I can’t wait to download every nightly build, which is more than 100 MB. So, I did a checkout of Flex 4 and have build run on my machine. Its well document on how to do a build and setup you need to have, to run Flex 4 build.

Checkout of Flex 4 is more than 200 MB and for me it has taken approx 1 hour on 256 Kbps connection. I prefer to use Tortoise SVN Client to checkin and checkout. You can download it from  the link below:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/tortoisesvn/TortoiseSVN-1.5.0.13316-win32-svn-1.5.0.msi?download

Install Tortoise SVN Client and then checkout from the link below:

To setup your system, you need to have the following installed on your machine:

  1. Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com/setup.exe) (Approx 16 MB)
  2. J2SE 5.0_13 (http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/5.0_13/index.html) File Name: jdk-1_5_0_13-windows-i586-p.exe (Approx 51 MB)
  3. Ant 1.7.0 (http://archive.apache.org/dist/ant/binaries/apache-ant-1.7.0-bin.zip) (Approx 11 MB)

After downloading the above, follow this link:
