The simFluence : Deep Linking Flex Applications Presentation at 360Flex
There’s an interesting article/presentation over at: The simFluence : Deep Linking Flex Applications Presentation at 360Flex.
It talks about how to implement deep-linking for your Flex apps. Traditionally moving from state to state in a Flex application, does not update the associated browser URL and hitting “back” and then “forward” will not bring you to the exact same state in the Flex UI, instead the application will be reinitialized. Using the ExternalInterface API you can now update the browser’s URL to match the state of your Flex application. This means that one can “bookmark” interesting spots deep inside the Flex application and can return to that bookmarked location later on.
