I could use some advice on managing my class structure.  My project is quite complex -- it has five projects (all using Flex):


About 90% of the current application functionality is in the CommonLib, with AIR API calls happening in AIRLib.  The three "display" projects kick off the STARTUP notification by doing:

Some of our Proxy classes use flash.filesystem.File functionality if available:

private var localData:LocalDelegate = ReflectionManager.createLocalDelegate();
private var appVO:AppVO;
public function loadAppData():void {
  if (localData) {
    appVO = localData.loadData();
  } else {
    appVO = remoteData.loadData();

Currently, the Desktop and Mobile projects call something like 
This pattern has worked reasonably well so far, but I'm wondering if there isn't a better way.  I notice that we don't have *any* PureMVC-aware code in our AIRLib project, and my current task might go more smoothly if we did.

I'm getting some data from a native extension for iOS and Android that needs to be shown on a view in CommonLib.  It would be nice and simple to have that data come in on a Notification, but it doesn't cleanly fit into any existing classes in the application.

A project I've been working on for a couple of years now has:

- Web creation tool
- Web viewer
- Desktop Viewer
- iPad Viewer
- Android tablet viewer

The libs break down like this:

- LibInhouse - everything that is sharable between all the above projects
- LibAir - everything that is sharable only between desktop and mobile projects
- LibMobile - everything that is sharable only between the mobile projects

PureMVC is everywhere in these libs and application projects.
