Reference :

     public class HelloFlashApp extends Sprite

        private var _context:IContext;

        public function HelloFlashApp()
            _context = new Context()
                .configure(new ContextView(this));

I am having doubts regarding ContextView. What is it exactly. I search docs and it says : The Context View represents the root DisplayObjectContainer for a Context ?

So, it should represent the "HelloFlashApp" ? ( Or the parent of HelloFlashApp ? )

Additionally, how can i access "HelloFlashApp" in ?
by using the injected contextView ?
if yes, does that mean i can access contextView ( HelloFlashApp ) anywhere in "Model" or even in any "Mediators" . Would not that open up direct access of one view with another ?

    Yes, it holds a reference to HelloFlashApp.

    Obviously this could be misused. There's always a trade-off between flexibility and security and this is one of those.
