We are currently running an Early Access (beta) program for select customers with our new Flex support. Our release (SilkTest 2008) is planned to release at the end of March. NDA protects beta customers, but rest assured our premier beta customer has a LOT of influence in the Flex space [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Note - we'll also be supporting AMF3 with SilkPerformer for loadtesting.
We are facing one new issue while using the flex application for Silk Automation. Please let us know if any one of you faced the following issue.
Silktest is able to recognize the independent .swf file correctly. But our actual BI application contains both web & flex components.
After compiling the flex file with the automation packages, and deploying flex file with the web application “Win32”, “Flex” extensions got enabled by SilkTest. But silk is not able to recognize the flex components of this web application.
Silk is able to recognize the flex components after the following work around:
We called the flex file code twice from the html source file code, now the web application will contain the flex screen (Which is having the all flex components) twice. Now silk is able to recognize the first flex screen and its components (all UI controls including Comboboxes, Push buttons, check boxes, labels etc.).
AC_FL_RunContent () Java script API is used to call the flash file. So, we are calling this AC_FL_RunContent () twice to get this workaround.
I tried with created one sample flex application which is called using <object>, <embed...> tags (hard coded)where silk is able to recognize, but when replaces these tags with AC_FL_RunContent ()I am not able to recognize.
Currently we are working on making silk recognize the flex components without this work around.
Is any one having an idea about how to solve this issue?
Please revert back to this mail if any one can help me out on this.
