Flex SDK 4.6 dosn't work on FlashPlayer 10.3 and requires FlashPlayer 11.1


    • Type: Improvement Improvement
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Minor Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: Apache Flex 4.9.0
    • Component/s: None
    • Labels:


      Flex SDK 4.6 require a minimum FlashPlayer version of 11.1.

      From a quick look this is related to the new spark validator classes (spark.validators.) using FlashPlayer 11 globalisation classes (flash.globalization.).

      In particular enterprises can be slow to update Flash Player versions and this would enable a smoother upgrade path to people currently on 4.5 SDK (in a Flash player 10.3 environment) to the new Apache Flex 4.x SDK.

        Comment [ Correct. There are some things that won't work in mobile though. Same is true for 10.2 there are just build file settings. Will send you that list in about 20 minutes

        Subject: [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-14) Flex SDK 4.6 dosn't work on FlashPlayer 10.3 and requires FlashPlayer 11.1

            [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-14?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13209882#comment-13209882 ]

        Justin Mclean commented on FLEX-14:

        At a first pass looks like there's there's no SDK code changes required to use the Flex 4.6 SDK in FP 11.0 or 10.3. The SDK compiles without errors for FP11.0 and FP 10.3.

        I took an existing large application that uses a mix of mx and spark UI components (using SDK 4.5) and recompiled it to use Apache Flex SDK 4.6 for Flash Player 10.3 (from the white board area). There was a minor issue with the version of the flex unit libraries. The version of the compiled swf was checked with swfdump.

        All unit tests passed and the application runs correctly in Flash Player 10.3. There may be (or not be) an issue with using new FP 4.6 features or some components the the application doesn't use. Even without further work I think this provides a easier upgrade path to Adobe Flex 4.6 SDK (and the next build of Apache Flex) for applications currently using older versions of the Flash Player (11.0,10.3).
