Subject RE: Re: [PROPOSAL] Swiz Framework Donation to Apache Flex
Date Tue, 28 May 2013 20:50:12 GMT
I do not agree to you. There are a lot of ways to approach an application development, some
may be of your liking others will not be. But there is no need to force one of them as the
Flex sdk one.

I would rather prefer to maintain all those as separate libraries for anyone to choose the
one he prefers.

Carlos.

the donation of the Swiz framework.  I use both swiz(for work) and
parsley(personal projects) and I am ambivalent at this point.  What I would
really like to see the best part of these frameworks (and maeby others like
spring-actionscript, robotlegs, etc.) integrated into Flex.

I am talking about things like an IOC container, DI, autowiring,
message/event handling etc.

The way I see it, these frameworks came about to fill a void in the Flex
framework.  Now that we are Apache, there is nothing stopping us from
baking these paradigms into the framework, thereby making these frameworks
obsolete.

Thanks,
Om
