Congratulations on the book Satish. I was wondering if AIR would be able to harness the OS level bridge in order to bring in multi-threading and thus take advantage of multi-core cpu's. This is one area where Java far excels many other platforms in my mind. What do you think?
Thanks

Hi Ashish,

Thank you.

I agree with you on this point that AIR needs to have multi-thread support, I hope Adobe will put this into future AIR releases. So far there is Merapi (http://www.merapiproject.net/) which seems to bridge this gap, however I have not personally used it.

Thanks,

Hi,
Just wandering, would this mean that Flex client running on client browser would be able to spawn threads ?
Would it be advisable?
I might have misunderstood the context of question but just wanted to get more insight on this.

AIR does not run in the browser, it is a stand alone Flash client.

Hi,
thanks for the reply.
Yeah, it runs in the Flash client but still the client OS will need to handle the threading, isnt it?
Thats what I was curious about?
How good would be that depending on client OS to manage the threads of a web-application running in a fat and Flash client.

regards,
Amit
