Locale libraries for automation

September 22, 2009 at 1:38 pm 2 comments

One has to keep in mind that Automation is a feature supported from Flash Builder/FlexBuilder. So if anybody is using a nightly build sdk, they need to ensure that they provide all the required pieces for automation to work.

Automation need the automation libraries and the locale libraries. (refer https://raniskumar.wordpress.com/2009/08/13/how-to-enable-flex-automation/ for details)

You can place these libraries anywhere on your machine add the paths in the build path of your project.  Even though the main automation libraries (atuomation.swc, automation_agent.swc etc) needs to be added using -include-libraries, the locale libraries can be just placed along with the other locale libraries in the appropriate locale folders.

Since flex3 sdk support English and Japanese only, automation also support these.  However in Flex4 many more languages are supported.  So theoretically these libraries can be used.

If you are  in real emergency to compile an application in an unsupported language, before your translations and the correct locale swc is ready, you can try changing the locale/{foldername} in an available swc to the required locale .You can use the normal zip utilities to open the swc and recreate it.(I have not tried it personally, theoretically this should work).

Note:  The locale libraies for automation are

  • automation_rb.swc
  • automation_agent_rb.swc
  • qtp_air_rb.swc

    Hello, I am looking for any documentation or information available on the subject of any potential security implications in enabling Flex automation capabilities.

    Specifically, we have chosen to compile the automation libraries with the applications, and I would like to confirm that there are no negative aspects for our Production environments from a security perspective.
