I recently came to know about the site www.swfpack.com which allows you pack your swf applications for different mobile runtimes like sis (with announcements to support in future nfl, jar etc.). It’s a good application, a maginficent web tool that can package your tools effortlessly with in minutes. But even after such good merits , I would not prefer to use it if I am working on any (i) commercial mobile app (ii) any app I am building for any client with whom I have signed an NDA , as this would risk my app to be uploded to a third party domain, which is not accepted in all the above said cases. So, I seriously doubt if similar tools which help you in a core development projects, are online, will be much used by industry developers for these cases , unless there is some agreement between the provider of the web tool and themselves …a kind of NDA.
This is perhaps one aspect that should be taken care of when decing to use a web tool (Even the owners of such tool should focus on how to make sure that their tool users intellectual rghts are protected…may be by adding a kind of serious agreement specially mentioning this). Till such things happen, I’d rather use a simple standalone tool on my desktop than risking my project.
