Subject: RemoteOperation last result not garbage collected


I discovered a not-so-known behavior of RemoteObject that could be useful to
the community:

RemoteObject RemoteOperations are keeping a reference to the last call
result, that can be retrieved through lastResult property.
Most of the time, you don't need that reference, as you will be processing
the result in the result handlers.

For operations that are called often, and return small result, it's not an
The problem raises if you have a RemoteObject with an operation that is
called once (or only a few times) and returns a large result.  
This could be the case for operations that are called at initialization
only, and that loads large results from the server.
In this case, the result of the last (and only) call, will not be garbage

To avoid this, you must clear the result manually in the result handler:.

For example:

protected function handleGenericVOResult(resultEvent:ResultEvent,
token:AsyncToken = null):void {
    var op: AbstractOperation =

Hope this helps...
