Subject RE: FlexJS application and swf mudoles

In my particular case the MAIN Application's main function is to control which module is active
by controlling the active object in a ViewStack. The MAIN Application also displays the system
alerts i.e. Calendar reminders. The main Modules are really separate applications, as a matter
of fact for testing purposes they all have their own Top Application to load the main Module
the "controller-module", the controller-modules then loads the other submodules as required.
The 3 principle ways the Module communicate with the MAIN Application by in order of popular
use: 1. Global variables, 2. Passing values In Events 3. RemoteObjects in conjunction with
Red5. Beyond that the modules communicate directly with a Java backend via BlazeDS.

Since I work on Enterprise applications I like to at least give the "illusion" the user is
using a single screen application, that is why I also use Dojo for some of the other work
I do. 

If my application HAS to become multiple separate applications (ie CRM, Calendar) I presume
a couple of ways to pass data around would via WebSockets or even BlazeDS.

That is why I was hoping to hear from someone who already had or was trying to do with I want
to try, because I'm so "confused" LOL!!

Any ideas are welcomed and appreciated.

Hi Carlos,

We don't have support for modules yet.  Volunteers could try to create it.
 But the first implementation would probably have the FlexJS SWF output loading SWF-based
modules and the FlexJS HTML/JS output loading other html or js files.  For your scenario,
how would the swf modules communicate to the FlexJS JS code?  Or is the main app a shell app
that doesn't talk much to the modules?
