How to prepare your environment for Flex unit testing

Adobe Flash Player

Due to licence and Adobe Flash Player version concerns, we decided not to embed the player into the Maven Flex Plugin. The Adobe Flash Player has to be available on the system performing the build. Please see the Adobe Web site to install your os-specific Flash Player distribution.

OS-specific settings

The Maven Flex Plugin will try to launch the Flash Player runtime to perform unit tests. Please check your PATH environment variable to make sure that the Flash Player is available to Maven.

The plugin will use different ways to run Flash Player dependending on your operating system :

Linux flashplayer, gflashplayer
Mac OS X open
Unix flashplayer, gflashplayer
Windows FlashPlayer, SAFlashPlayer, rundll32
