Subject Re: OSGi bundle Plugin registry system
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2012 21:40:32 GMT
Have a look at http://www.potomacframework.org/. Development has stalled
since flex 4.1, but has much potential.
Potomac includes OSGI like eclipse plugin, extension points, DI,
bundle/module management, assets management.
I've been using it on a large enterprise flex project with 80+ bundles with
lots of success.
