As the title of this thread suggests, svn’ing the html-template that Flash Builder relies on to generate the container html files can lead to some headaches. One in particular that has just taken me about 5 hours to solve.
I’ve been migrating my SVN repo over to Springloops (check it out if you haven’t already) and decided to add the html-template folder to source control. Made a few commits, then got to building a deployable swf and that’s when the shit hit the fan. From what I can ascertain, Flash Builder was copying whatever was in the html-template folder (which included the .svn metadata folder) into the build folder. As everything in the build folder was versioned as well (so I can one click deploy to staying and production server) bizarre things started happening when I tried to commit things. In hindsight I should’ve cottoned on to the fact that Flash Builder was actually copying and pasting the html-template’s svn data into a folder that it shouldn’t have been. Of course, hindsight’s a wonderful thing 😉
