Subject Re: Flex 5 UIComponent - Behavior Pattern
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2012 10:55:14 GMT
I also find that the Behavior pattern is a powerful way of making
components much lighter, more configurable and easier to extend and
customize. I have used this pattern in one of my last Flex projects to
create different versions of the same application with different features
(features are implemented as behaviors). Configuring an applications
features was only a matter of attaching the required behaviors an adding a
new feature was only a matter of implementing a new behavior. I can also
see new extensions or plugins implemented as behaviors in the future, which
can be easily attached to your own custom components.
