Modularization of Flex Applications – Conclusions
Few notes I took from the Yakov Fain lecture that took place last week:
When loading modules: you don’t have to load RSL in the main app, only link it as such to the module itself
Merge into Code – Yakov reminded us that in this linkage option, only classes I used will be compiled into the swf
Fonts slow the compilation – so always compile your css which embed the fonts as a separate SWF file, and load it dynamically.
Preloader as a flash content – In his book “Enterprise flex application” he gives and example of using a flash preloader swf who looks like the initial login page in your application, and on the background he loads the rsls while the user verify his details.
