More testing support for Flex from Borland

The number of vendors supporting Flex for testing continues to grow. Borland today is releasing SilkTest 2008 which can perform functional testing for Flex apps and SilkPerformer 2008 which can do load testing with AMF.

Good news for everyone!

    Is Adobe working with smaller testing tool builders like PushToTest (http://www.pushtotest.com/) as well to add Flex testing to their tools?Their offering looks good since it’s free to certain amount of testing threads when you get the supported version. And reasonably priced for larger scale testing needs. Plus it is open source as well if you want to compile on your own.Compare this to the monolithic and very expensive tools that Borland and other big players provide.I think something like free and opensource PushToTest would be a pretty good match for the free and opensource Flex SDK.

    We have reached out to various folks in the past. At this point everything is documented so anyone should be able to use the automation APIs to build a testing tool, open source or not. The Flex community needs to encourage any project (open or not) to support Flex, Adobe communication alone is insufficient.

  5. I agree with Matt that Adobe has done a good job with automation API.We created a Flex testing tool based on the API and I can tell you it works just great. Have a look at what we created: http://riatest.com
