Title: little demo app in 2 flavours
Post by: turtlebite on June 25, 2012, 01:30:55

After a heating discussion about PureMVC and performance I decided to create a little test application: one app is using a single monolithic class, the other, identical app is using PureMVC. Maybe there are others who like to have the source code to compare? Feel free to do so! :-)

Hey Christian,

That's a nice demo. Good to be able to demonstrate that using good OOP separation of interests (and in particular the PureMVC framework) has no discernible impact on performance. In a large application, it's generally accepted that in order for a team to work on a project it really needs to be broken into multiple classes, and that OOP best practices are a good thing to adopt even if you're sure there's a 'shorter path'. But the one thing that naysayers usually fall back to is the 'performance will suffer' argument.
