I'm thinking of implementing the Pipes Utility into an Flash application (not Flex) I'm building for work. The application needs to be modular with each "page" being contained in it's own SWF. Each module will be unique to each other, one is a video player another an interactive map. Modules need to communicate with the shell and vice verca.

As each module is unique they generally each have a different API which the shell needs to communicate with. For example, the map module needs to respond to input passed down from the shell where as the video player only needs to alert the shell that it's finished playing or has been closed by the user.

Is this a good candidate for using the Pipes Utility? If a module is unloaded from the shell and a notification is attempted to be routed to it will an error occur or does it simply fail silently?

Any help/advice is appreciated  :)

You can have a look at the application I made in pure ActionScript with Modules and Pipes : http://www.tekool.net/blog/2009/08/09/flash-only-modules-with-puremvc-pipes-demo/

Hope this helps.
