This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
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?
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.
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.
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.
