Can anybody tell me what is the difference between .swc and .swz file in flex?

swz files are flex framework classes distributed by adobe. One loaded into flash player they can be used by any website without downloading again. which means if the swz file was already downloaded from some other website then the user does not need to download it again to run your application.
SWC files are class library created by user . This library is cached by browser. so this is downloaded once only until changed and cannot be shared by any other website because its your custom code and not a standard library of classes like swz file.
