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.
