I have a flex app in an all html site. When you load the flex
app a list of users gets loaded. The users list is a 1.73MB xml
file. It takes some time to load. Some times the users have to
navigate off the flex app make some changes then come back to the
flex app. Is there any way to cache the users list so it doesnt
have to load each time the flex app gets called?
However, SOs have a default size limit of 100K, so that means
you'd either have to prompt the user for permission to increase the
size of the shared object, or parse the data into a smaller format.
I'd suggest going the parse route, since the size of XML files is
largely due to the mark-up overhead, and you can probably get the
size down considerably by folding the info into native classes.
I am curious if the initial user-list download is necessary
though - is this not something that could be minimized via
webservices or remote objects - i.e., only grabbing the disctinct
information the app needs as it needs it?
