Today I discoverd a strange bug in Flashbuilder 4.1 Eclipse plugin in combination with Eclipse Helios SR1.
The installation was without problems and I was even able to run FlexUnit testcases for Flex Application projects but I wasn’t able to run FlexUnit testcases for Flex Library projects. I always got this error:
FlexUnitApplication start failed. Reason: Local configuration cannot be nested in a directory.
First of all I thought my testcases were damaged. I thought false because I was able to run the testcases successfully using the maven command “mvn test”.
Then I suspected flexmojos 3.6.1 to destroy the project setup. I was false again because when I launched the Flashbuilder standalone I was able to run the testcases in the library project.
The Flashbuilder standalone version uses Eclipse Galileo instead of Eclipse Helios.
So if anybody out there has the same problem: the reason is a incompatibility between Flashbuilder 4.1 Eclipse plugin and Eclipse Helios.
