IntelliJ Idea 11 Flex compilation issue
I have problem with completing my code. It works fine in Flash Builder. But I used it previously in Idea and it was much faster. So I imported my FB files into new Idea project. But when I try to debug I receive error message:
Using built-in compiler shell, up to 4 parallel threads See compiler settings at File | Settings | Compiler | Flex Compiler page
Starting Flex compiler: /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java -d32 -Dapplication.home=/Applications/Adobe/flex_sdk_4 -Xmx384m -Dsun.io.useCanonCaches=false -Djava.awt.headless=true -Duser.language=en -Duser.region=en -Xmx512m -classpath "/Applications/IntelliJ IDEA 11.app/plugins/flex/lib/idea-flex-compiler-fix.jar:/Applications/IntelliJ IDEA 11.app/plugins/flex/lib/flex-compiler.jar:/Applications/Adobe/flex_sdk_4/lib/flex-compiler-oem.jar" com.intellij.flex.compiler.FlexCompiler 58789
Compilation completed with 1 error and 0 warnings
java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Accept timed out
I tried to restart my computer. I have clean OS installation and I don't have any program that should block it.
If it helps I develop on OS X 10.7
Thanks for your replies.
Just did a fresh install of IDEA 11.1.3 and Flex SDK 4.6 and got this error with a brand-new Flash Mobile app+module.
Here's how I fixed it:
Go to Settings > Compiler > Flex Compiler
Choose Mxmlc/compx instead of the default Built-in compiler shell (Screenshot: http://puu.sh/10Nhg)
Compile your application
The accepted answer above did not work for me, and while the answer provided by Florian Salihovic pointed me in the right direction, I thought I would post the solution here.
This comment on the link provided by Florian Salihovic, specifically the comment I've linked to directly, contains the following solution that worked for me:
- Find your hostname. You can use hostname in your shell.
- Edit /etc/hosts and add 127.0.0.1 <<hostname>> where <<hostname>> is the name reported by the hostname command.
I have found that this corrected my issue (on Linux) and should correct the issue on OSX as well. With this, you can use the built-in compiler shell still as well.
This is similar to an issue tracked on Jetbrain's YouTrack Error while starting Flex compiler. You might could check that one.
