    AIR app question:To cache binaries as a BLOB or on file system?

    injpix Level 3

      Hello, I am programming an AIR application that will be caching/saving some data from our remote server to the users machine.  I am doing this for that the application doesn’t have to make the same request and can run offline.

       

      I am using Flash Player’s SQL classes to save the plain-text data and binaries.  But I question what would be more optimal: to store binaries (Images and SWFs) as BLOBs in the database or to have a URI pointing to them in the user’s File.applicationStorageDirectory?
