F10 – 701: Essential Techniques for Testing Flash-Based Rich Internet Applications

Track: Hands-On Testing Techniques Lab

Flash-based web and desktop applications – including those built with ActionScript, Flex, or Adobe AIR – present their own unique set of testing challenges. In this hands-on session application architect Kris Schultz will explain various defects you’re likely to encounter when working with Flash-based rich internet and desktop applications and lead you through exercises that demonstrate the specific testing practices and tools you can use to uncover these defects quickly and effectively.

Topics will include (time permitting):

  • Using network throttling tools to simulate real-world network connection conditions.
  • Using network monitoring tools to investigate data and messaging errors.
  • Properly exercising Flash version detection logic.
  • Uncovering common deployment mistakes.
  • Evaluating application performance.
  • Enabling application logging.

Attendees will leave this session with materials and experience enabling them to be better prepared to test Flash-based applications confidently.
