For those of you who are using Maven for your project builds and depending on maven-central-compatible pom's (i.e., not the OSGi-ready dependencies in the SpringSource Enterprise Bundle Repository), I thought it would be worth documenting the process of pulling a nightly snapshot build of Spring BlazeDS Integration into your project in case you don't mind living on the edge a little (i.e., fair warning that things might break) and are in need of the latest fixes in between releases.
All development is now happening in SVN trunk for what will eventually be version 1.5.0. At this point we have no intention of any further 1.0.x releases unless a critical bug arises.
Currently, the only snapshots we are publishing are the core Maven artifacts for 1.5.0. We have not yet incorporated publishing of a full .zip distribution with docs, source, etc. (as we did with 1.0.x) into our nightly build process. We will likely begin publishing a full nightly distro right before we release the first 1.5.0 Milestone.
As a consequence of our migration to Maven as the single build system for the project, as well as the fact that there will eventually be additional artifacts included (beyond just the core jar) in 1.5.0, the main dependency's artifact id has changed to spring-flex-core.
To grab the current nightly snapshots with Maven, you must first have the maven.springframework.org snapshot repository configured either in your settings.xml (preferred) or directly in your project's pom. The correct format of the repository entry is:
Once you have the correct repository settings, you would express a dependency on spring-flex-core as follows:Code:<repository> <id>spring-snapshot</id> <name>Spring Portfolio Snapshot Repository</name> <url>http://maven.springframework.org/snapshot</url> <releases> <enabled>false</enabled> </releases> <snapshots> <enabled>true</enabled> </snapshots> </repository>
*** One problem you will likely encounter is that 1.5.0 depends on BlazeDS 4, which is not currently published in any known public Maven repository. You will need to install the BlazeDS 4 Maven artifacts into your local repository in order to build successfully against the 1.5.0 nightly snapshots. For example, you can use 'mvn install:install-file' to install to your local repository, or 'mvn deploy:deploy-file' to install to your own hosted repo. You can grab the necessary pom's from our SVN repository here:Code:<dependency> <groupId>org.springframework.flex</groupId> <artifactId>spring-flex-core</artifactId> <version>1.5.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT</version> </dependency>
