in reply to Using WWW::Selenium To Test Or Automate An Ajax Website

Not to resurrect this thread too much (nor ones that I have raised before) ... has anyone ever tried to add hooks (even, presumably, custom-made hooks and JS classes...) that can tap into the interactions between Flash and a web-page?

In my particular case, I know what the phantom test-user is going to “do to” the Flash stuff ... what is going to be clicked and so-forth ... and what I am interested in testing is the (known to be broken) JavaScript’s reactions to what Flash, in turn, gives it.   I’m not trying to push Flash’s buttons:   I’m trying, first, to capture what it generates, then, to play it back at will.   Therefore, I know perfectly well that there is going to have to be (more) instrumentation of the JavaScript, akin to what Selenium is already doing in order to create its test environment.   It’s not just Perl, and I understand that, although I want Perl to be ultimately driving this test-suite as usual.   What I am hoping to find from this inquiry is insight from “those Monks who have gone this way before.”

Edit:   After writing this, I encountered http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/testing_usability.html and, within that page:

one comment of which lead to:

I hope that a fellow Monk finds this collection of breadcrumbs useful, and will point to more.

[shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
[shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
[shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
[stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
