FunFX – A Ruby tool for functional testing of Adobe Flex applications
Some of the key-punchlines…
- FunFX is the only free alternative to achieve functional testing of Adobe Flex applications.
- FunFX is open-source and uses Ruby to write tests. Ruby is a simple but yet powerful language, which makes it possible to write tests that are easy to understand. Ruby was chosen due to its DOM capabilities and the fact that it is a scripting language.
- FunFX has used Watir, a great testing tool for web applications, as a model on how to write the tests in Ruby.
- FunFX is created as a framework that will enable you to drive a Flex application through a web browser.
- FunFX together with for instance Test::Unit or rSpec creates a great tool for testing and asserting the functionality of a Flex application.
- FunFX seems to have a lot of quirks that needs to be ironed out before its ready for production use, but it’s an interesting initiative.
There seems to be a lot of quirks that still need to be ironed out before it can be used in production, but its interesting stuff… and those Norwegians have shown great stuff before (Think stuff like Opera and Tor).
