is there a best practice for auto update flex web applications, much in the same way AIR applications have an auto update mechanism?
can you please point me to the right direction?
I'm talking about a more complex mechanism that can handle updates to modules being loaded into the application ect...
I can always query the server for the verion and prevent loading from cach when a module needs to be updated
but I was hoping for something easy like the AIR auto update feature
I use a custom deployment script that appends a version number to any SWF. This ensures that any update will take effect when the page is reloaded. There are many options to avoid browser caching issues, but to my knowledge, none of them are handled on the client side.
