Dude, don’t check Flash SWF’s into CVS as ASCII. Everyone will think you coded things wrong, there is a security issue with SWF’s accessing data across domains, WebLogic needs to set Flash MIME types, and that Flash had a compile error… all of which are wrong.

If you check it in as Binary, everything works, and everyone forgets the Flash comments they made.

Doughnut hole? Why yes, thank you.

  1. Why check SWFs in at all? Check the FLAs in as binary, everything else as ASCII and have people build the SWFs as needed/part of a build system.

  2. i agree about checking swfs in. some of my clients don’t have flash developers on staff, so it’s a good idea and a time saver to keep the latest swfs with the project. i normally keep them in a deliverables or exports directory inside of the main project directory so they are seperate from the source.

    i have always checked them in as binary.
