I have not used modules yet, but as i understand, one primary advantage is that applications loaded using SWFLoader contain the whole Flex framework, so are inherently larger. Modules do not. Of course, the cached framework available in flex 3.0 may make this difference moot. I have been very successful loading apps with SWFLoader, and have not had the need to explore modules yet.
Have you tried to google this question?
Yeah I googled it, but I couldn't find any good explanations.
Yeah, I just tried too and did not find a good comparison.
I advise going with Modules. They were designed from the start to be used to modularize an application, while SWFLoader is more of a legacy solution.
Ok, thanks for the suggestion Tracy.
I've used Modules to load in prior versions of swfs, like AS2. SWFLoader also loads in AS2 swfs (I believe from what i remember off the top of my head) but you can debug within Modules now, and I'm thinking that's a major advantage.
Dont quote me on that tho as far as being the only advantage, im sure theres more ;)
