Solution Description

Provides a m2e connector for Flex maven projects build with the net.flexmojos.oss:flexmojos-maven-plugin (version 5 and 6) to Flash Builder.

Supports Right-click on project, Maven > Update project...

The connector will synchronize the project settings in a pom first fashion:

Important note: You need Flash Builder 4.7 to work. (Can work with 4.* as well but not tested).

  • Adds Flash, Flex, Air nature to project,
  • Adds source, test, and resources paths to project source paths,
  • Adds Flex framework version to project (will generates "Flex 4.9.0" for flex-framework:,
  • Adds other SWC dependencies from local .m2 repository to project library paths.
  • Adds locales related compiler arguments.
  • Configures Air manifest path for certificates.

Known limitations:

This is an Alpha release, developed and tested with Flexmojos 6 and Flash Builder 4.7. Moreover, the connector only support Flex projects for now and provide very basic integration.

Support promise:

The Plug-In in its final will support all options covered by Flash Builder 4.7 project settings for every project types covered by Flexmojos, it will support future Maven-Flex-Plugin developed by Apache. This may result in a new/separate project or being integrated into this m2e connector.

Why to contribute ?

Flex is not dead, and it might be even more true with FalconJS compiler, which will target Flex application to Javascript. Apache community is vibrant, and development on Eclipse is fun. The project is fully managed with Maven and Tycho (brings OSGi support to maven modules) and emphasize best practices through development.

Hi, I'm trying to install in Mac OSX - Eclipse JEE Juno with Flash Builder plugin, and wasn't able to do it due to following error:

java.vendor=Apple Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=macosx, ARCH=x86_64, WS=cocoa, NL=es_ES
Framework arguments: -product org.eclipse.epp.package.jee.product -keyring /Users/carlosrovira/.eclipse_keyring -showlocation
Command-line arguments: -os macosx -ws cocoa -arch x86_64 -product org.eclipse.epp.package.jee.product -keyring /Users/carlosrovira/.eclipse_keyring -showlocation

If there's some workaround that I could test let me know to help improving this needed Eclipse plugin

Hello Carlos and first thank you for the report.

The error you give me isn't really informative, can I redirect you to the github where I created the issue you encounter and give me more information ? I haven't myself a Mac OSX to try installing it, however I am sure I can help you to fix the problem.
