I would like to know your opinion on what Bill Sanders, one of the co-authors of "ActionScript 3 Design Patterns" says about not using constructors at all, here is asummary of his original post Constructors functions are Cluster bombs
* "If you do not include one, you’re not tempted to add properties and methods in the constructor that might generate dependencies. Your client isn’t a problem because its just making requests and none of the other classes instantiate your client."
* "With “parameterized” classes, instead of passing a parameter to the class, it’s less binding to pass it just to the method that uses it."
* "If everything in a class is needed immediately by the constructed instance, first instantiate an instance and then call a method through the instance that fires off the whole crew."
Personally, I am starting to think he is right. Hey! He (among others) wrote the most interesting book I've red about AS3. In fact I think I will read it again just when I finish it. But as with the book, the concepts related loose-coupling between classes, are a litle difficult to grasp for me. Yet
