"Now it's easier and faster to do cross-browser tests for our web and Flex based Integrated Online Marketing solution," said Keith Davidson, vice president of engineering and operations at Lyris, Inc. "With testing support for Flex and Flash technology from Sauce Labs, we can write one test for all our Flex and web application functional testing and run it on multiple browsers in the cloud via Sauce OnDemand. Having this automation is an important component of our continuous integration strategy to deliver quality products to our customers."
"We're pleased to see that Sauce Labs is releasing a solid open source testing solution available for applications created with Flex and Flash technology," said Dave Gruber, group product marketing manager at Adobe Systems. "The ease of conducting cross-browser application testing in the cloud is a great advancement, making Flex and Flash developers more efficient."
Flex is a highly productive, free, open source framework for building expressive web applications that deploy consistently on all major browsers, desktops and operating systems by leveraging the Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR® runtimes.
"Automated cross-browser testing of applications created with Flex and Flash technology is a critical component of deploying applications," said John Dunham, CEO of Sauce Labs. "Sauce Labs is happy to extend the Selenium framework to support this."
