Happy Flex Testing – FunFX

Posted by Charles | October 8, 2007 .

While you growing your Flex application to become a giant serious system, you really want to keep up with testing. Good news, there are options. Got this from and between Derek Wischusen at FlexonRails (my favorate topic) and Aslak Hellesoy, a top RoR guy. FunFX is a free, open source Flex’s automation framework, developed by Peter Motzfeldt, that makes it possible to take advantage of Flex’s automation framework using test scripts written in Ruby. Sweet, that’ll help the Flex/RoR breeding process… FunFX is packaged as a Ruby gem. I was unable to install it via the normal gem install route, so for now it looks like you’ll have to download it from here and do a local install. AS Derek put it, So far FunFX seems like the only functional testing for Flex tool that fits the bill of “affordable, scriptable and easy to use”

    If you are interested in Flex Automation and particularly GUI testing have a look at the upcoming RIATest testing tool at http://riatest.com

    Disclosure: I am the guy who is developing the product :-)

    If you could give me the instructions on how to set up FunFX, I will really appreciate it. Unfortunately, there are no clear cut instructions on this subject on the FunFX home page. The author skips the steps e.g. He shown the snapshot of Flex Compiler but does not show how to start it. I followed all his instructions and have installed Ruby, flex builder 3, eclipse with flex builder 3 plugin, flex sdk 3 and all the other files. If you have installed and setup FunFX successfully, please let me know how at asherfawad@yahoo.com

    Thank you
