I also have to wonder what a pain this has to be for a large website with many rotating banner ads - having all of these same files copied over and over in separate subdirectories. Flash had 2 files - a html file and swf file stored in the same directory. Am I missing something?
the banner name - with config.xml - created by Dreamweaver
Assets - 4 or 5 files, not counting json or sound files
edge_includes - and its 2 files
images - at least they are unique
And I, maybe wrongly, create a html file in Dreamweaver with the oam file inserted in it.
Using the Adobe Content Distribution Network (CDN) is a great way to speed up Animate composition delivery. Compositions using the Adobe CDN all share a single URL for jQuery and the Edge Runtime. The browser caches the runtime, so the user only downloads the library once no matter how may Animate compositions they view, even if compositions are on different sites and produced by different authors.
Don't use the CDN if your composition needs to run without an Internet connection or if you want to use your own hosting exclusively.
The Edge Runtime CDN uses the following URL:
So now I know what that CDN option is about.
