On August 12, I participated Farata’s symposium for Enterprise developers for the second time. But unlike the first time, I was on the other side of the barricades. I presented my research in the field of functional testing of Flex-based RIAs. Since my previous preso at NJFlex user group, I figured out how to include automatic functional testing in enterprise application development life cycle.
In these presentations, I demonstrated what a Flex developer needs to know to prepare his or her application or even a single component to painless UAT or QA testing. Using the tool FlexMonkey form GorillaLogic I demonstrated the basic concepts of interaction with Flex Automation API and components instrumentation. And for dessert, I showed how to automatically run functional and unit tests on each code commit to the version control system. The screenshot above is an illustration of what I was talking about – instrumentation of components, introduction to FlexMonkey – an open source Flex-enabled testing tool, and Jenkins – one of the best open source continuous integration servers. The entire enterprise RIA development cycle was sampled.
Stop! Why am I trying to write the transcript of my preso?
