    How I can reduce a Flex application size?

    pskamalnath
      Hi

      I have developed a Chat application using Flex and XIFF API. The XIFF API size is around 500 KB. I need the basic chat functionality . Now my chat application size is around 400KB(in release mode). Is there any way that I can reduce my Chat application size , so that it will loads to the client machine quickly.

          Probably there are a lot of things you can do to increase perceived
          responsiveness that may or may not change file size. But if you really want
          to slim it down, rewrite it in Flash.

            400K really isn't that big. With everyone on broadband now, an app that size should download in less than a couple seconds.
