    Question How to make ant build.xml for a working FlashBuilder project?

    I have a Flex project that uses BlazeDS and I want to make an external build script so I can build the project outside of FlashBuilder. The eclipse environment lets you export an ant build xml file but it only has the java commands. Is there a way to export the mxmlc commands used by FlashBuilder to make an ant build file?

    Finally got the syntax right. Here is the build file I ended up with:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
    <!-- WARNING: Eclipse auto-generated file.
    Any modifications will be overwritten.
    To include a user specific buildfile here, simply create one in the same
    directory with the processing instruction <?eclipse.ant.import?>
    as the first entry and export the buildfile again. -->
