We have introduced some testing tool: FlexMonkey: Another Open Source Flex UI Testing Tool , Fluorida – An Open Source (Maybe) Auto-testing Tool for Flex/Flash . Now let see another: Flunit. What is Fluint? Generall to say it is a testing framework based on the concepts of FlexUnit and JUnit. It enhanced the function of asynchronous. At the same time it is a graphical testing runner and integrated continuous building systems with an optional Adobe AIR client for directory watching.

  1. Hi there!

    As a newcomer to testing, I was wondering what you think the benefits are of choosing Fluint over FlexMonkey or FlexUnit. Or should you use one in one case and another in another? Thanks so much, these posts have been helpful.

    Best,
    Lance
