packaging & deployment question

[ Edited ]



Once a new project created, by default, the project merge "default" libraries into it.


They are:

(1) Referenced Libraries:  blackberry.swc, qnx-screen.swc, qnx-air.swc

(2) they are under "BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK 0.9.1 for Adobe AIR" folder or

under "Flex Hero" folder:

airglobal.swc, flex.swc, osmf.swc, textLayout.swc, and servicemonitor.swc.


My question is, are all these libraries automatically merge into project and get bundle into bar file ?

If my project never need  flex.swc  ( any flex package classes ) then can I remove it to reduce the bar side.

( how to remove no needed standard library ? )

( or these are default standard libraries, it always included, no matter needed or not ? )


Thanks for your help.


( fyi.  I am using  Flash Builder "Burrito" Premium Preview  ( try version ). )

i think to be safe you should just leave them be. i doubt they take up any significant space if they are left in your build. better safe than sorry

The .bar files are merely .zip files with a different extension.  If you want to see what is inside the .bar file, use an unzip program, possiblying renaming temporarily to have a .zip extension first. 


If something is not in that .bar file, it is not bundled and installed with your app so you can safely ignore it.
