As part of a project, I've prepared a AIR portal/host
application, which allows to add other SWFs.
On my system everything performs nicely. But I wonder, how
the memory consumption correlates with the number of embedded SWFs.
Could someone jump in here? Does AIR require X MByte and each
loaded SWF additionally Y MByte? Which values apply? Or does only
the first AVM instance requires huge amounts of memory, while all
other allocate a small memory chunk?
May I do things to reduce the memory footprint?
Additionally, how do I isolate the loaded SWF correctly? E.g.
I'd not be happy, if a loaded SWF could steal the focus/cursor from
In case loaded SWFs need services, the AIR portal/host
application will be enhanced to provide a well defined set of
services like loadPreference(), getContentsOfLocalFile() or
I wonder, if I can even force a loaded SWF to not do certain
things, like constantly grabbing the focus.
