Gorilla Logic has released FlexMonkey 1.0 GA which it claims to be a de facto standard for automated functional testing of Flex applications. After eight months of maturing in a beta status, FlexMonkey is now available for production use by developers and quality assurance professionals everywhere.
FlexMonkey is an open source testing tool providing record/playback functional testing of Adobe Flex applications. FlexMonkey 1.0 GA delivers the features and improvements most requested by the FlexMonkey user community including:
- “Wait For” handling – removes reliance on the PauseCommand by defining conditions that pause a script until true
- Fuzzy Bitmap Compare – the Verify command for bitmap images now allows for user- controlled tolerances in color comparisons
- Simplified Setup – new easier process for configuring FlexMonkey testing of an application
- Compatability – out of the box compatibility with multiple Flex SDKs (3.3, 3.4.1 and 3.5)
- Code Compiling – easier customization and compilation of FlexMonkey source
FlexMonkey is well-suited for use by both developers and QA testers. It provides for regression and functional testing, and can be run from popular build systems and continuous integration environments, like CruiseControl.
“FlexMonkey 1.0 GA marks a major milestone for the FlexMonkey open source project and the Flex community who have come to rely on it. We encourage all existing users to upgrade to this new version which paves the way for our upcoming FlexMonkey releases for Flex 4, as well as our FlexMonkey/Selenium bridge,” said Stu Stern, CEO, Gorilla Logic.
