Eric Hilfer, Director of Software Engineering at Tom Snyder Productions, will speak about testing with the Flex Automation Framework.
Automated testing is an essential component of developing and maintaining software applications created by large teams. Flex Builder Professional provides an extensive framework for recording and replaying GUI-level user interactions for automated testing of Flex applications. Although the documentation mostly references using HP Quick Test Pro as the recording and playback agent, the framework can be used by other commercial testing agents, like RIATest, or agents that you can build on your own. Eric will describe his own journey of adapting the automation framework for testing Timeliner® XE, a massive AIR application, and will share some best practices (and some not-so-best practices) for extending the framework beyond the core Flex components. Some powerful examples will be shown of using RIATest to run data-driven regression testing of Timeliner® XE.
Please join us after 6:30pm for discussion and refreshments. Talk begins promptly at 7pm.
