Please excuse me if this question has been answered but it
really is bothering me.
The AIR documentation talks of security for clients but where
is the security for developers? After creating an AIR package I
installed it and noticed that all the files where installed in the
correct folder. But why would I want my HTML/Ajax/Image files
available for anyone to change?
So unless I am missing something with the package commands it
seems to me that on the Ajax side of things it just basically
creates an exe, copies the files into the specified directory, and
allows the default html document to be called from within the exe.
To me it just doesn't make any sense why the source code
would be available for anyone to change.
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction or at
least confirm my apprehensiveness.
You are correct that AIR does not provide any mechanisms for
"protecting" the source files in your application. On the other
hand, nothing prevents you from obfuscating them, either. I believe
there are existing tools for this.
