What is the best way to incorporate flash file as a url in webapplication?

I am planning to integrate BO Xcelsius dashboards(SWF files) using open doc  with web application.
Right now i have only one option as using Iframe to incorporate it.

Is this secure and fast ?
I need to deal with huge amount of data for swf files.Is there any other approach you can advise?

Thanks in advance...

You should be fine to put the SWFs inside an iframe or load them directly onto the main page or load them dynamically when needed.

Basically the same choices you'd have for any image file.

The fact that the content itself is Flash, won't make the download any faster or slower or more or less secure than for other binary content you could be loading.

Security is always relative; there isn't an up-or-down answer.  If you can tell us a little more about what you're trying to protect, we can probably offer some guidelines.  You would use different techniques for bowling scores, medical records or nuclear launch codes.  Maybe you want to join OWASP and attend the New York conference next month.

Fast is also a relative term, and it's usually dependent on the bandwidth of the client connection.  If you have a known bit rate and a bit count you can easily do the arithmetic that will compute the time-to-complete.  You can do similar arithmetic on the server that is sending the content.  As a general guideline, you would want to strive for subsecond response time.  This has been the gold standard for over 30 years.  Thirty years ago, the cost of achieving fast response time was somewhat daunting.  Today it's trivial.  So if you find things are running slowly, get a performance expert involved right away, optimize your queries, reduce wasted bandwidth and then be prepared to "throw hardware" at the problem, perhaps by using a CDN.
