Flex Building error “unable to export SWC oem” (Flexmojos)

I’ve been working on perfecting a build environment for Flex4+Flash Builder 4+JBoss+Maven that works for IDEA & Eclipse (FB), hot deploys to JBoss, and plays well in continuous integration (Hudson).  I was following a Maven anti-pattern that’s easy to fall into – make your maven aggregator projects your parent projects.  This is a bad idea since projects that the aggregator builds may have common settings with other children, but not with all other children (swc’s vs. swf’s in particular).  So I did the right thing and created a tree of parent pom’s that my projects use as parents, leaving the aggregator as just an aggregator.

- lots of people ran into it when dealing with resources and fonts

The fix was to specify the mergeResourceBundle option in the flexmojo's config:
