Re: Why Bar file is very big


I don't know if u'll get a response from the RIM devs themselves. But in the mean time just google "flex mxml file size" and you will get a bunch of details on the subject and explanation. Good luck!

Re: Why Bar file is very big

There is a significant difference in SWF filesize between going the MXML route vs. the Sprite route.  There is also a difference in coding and learning curve between the two approaches.  It is just a trade off between lean file size and launch time vs. development design.
