  • FlexMonkey  is a testing framework for Flex apps that provides for the capture, replay and verification of Flex UI functionality.  FlexMonkey  can record and playback Flex UI interactions, and generates ActionScript-based testing scripts that can easily be included within a continuous integration process. It uses the Flex Automation API and was created by extending Adobe's sample automation adapter,  AutoQuick . See the  Getting Started Guide  for a quick overview of installing, recording, and running tests with  FlexMonkey .  FlexMonkey  has been donated to the Flex community by  Gorilla Logic , who developed  FlexMonkey  because of their belief that only monkeys would develop code without being able to automate their testing.

  • Where does FlexMonkey fit in? * Twitter: ArulKumaran * Blog: shockwave-india.com/blog *
    • Where does FlexMonkey fit in?
    • Captures tests like a functional tool, but scripts those tests within FlexUnit, a unit testing framework for Flex
    • Free & Open source
    • Built on Adobe Flex Automated Testing API which is bundled with Flex Builder Pro

    • Features
    • Records and plays back Flex UI interactions
    • UI Interactions can be edited and replayed
    • Generates FlexUnit TestCases, and can also be used with non-FlexUnit-based testing frameworks
    • Tests can be run from build systems such as Ant
    • Handles all Flex UI events
    • Uses Flex Automation API to provide native control over your flex app. Requires no javascript or browser plug-ins to use.
    • Unit tests are written entirely in ActionScript. No other programming or special purpose scripting languages are needed to develop comprehensive UI test suites.
    • Non-invasive. Requires no modifications to your application source
