Affects Version/s: Adobe Flex SDK 3.6 (Release)
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Flash Integration
Environment:Affected OS(s): All OS Platforms
Affected OS(s): All OS Platforms
Language Found: English
Steps to reproduce:
1.Create simple flex application with with no components or just only mx:Button (any component) using Flex Builder or command line options
Minimal file size of SWF created comes to around 273KB, which includes the Flex framework code enveloped together with simple application code.
Flex framework code should not be enveloped together in the SWF created for the application.
Workaround (if any):
Provide flex framework as a plugin/addon to be integrated to flash player on browser.
This reduces redundancy in the bandwidth usage at large on a user session basis there by reducing the initial load time for a flex application.
Silverlight is at advantage on this respect.
