98 percent of all computers run Flash Player and because of its ubiquity, agile development teams building rich, cross-platform Flash applications, increasingly choose Adobe Flex. Ensuring that complex applications run on all browsers is critical, and long testing cycles can become a bottleneck to continuous integration.

By integrating FlexPilot with Sauce OnDemand, Sauce Labs increases flexibility and shortens testing cycles with the only fully open source Flex testing system that runs on the cloud. Because Flex Pilot is open source, developers can write contributions on an as-needed basis for their projects. This allows teams to create Selenium test scripts for advanced Flex projects, then run those scripts in the cloud against multiple browser versions in parallel. A radical reduction in test run times of up to 90 percent allows for fast feedback that enables development teams to increase their agile velocity and ensure releases work across all browsers.

At Adobe MAX 2010, Adam Christian will introduce cloud-based automated testing with Sauce for Flex and Flash, an extension of the Selenium cross-browser testing tool. With Sauce for Flex and Flash, developers can write one test for all Flex and Flash applications and run it on multiple browsers in the cloud via Sauce OnDemand, the premier cloud-based Selenium testing service. Automated testing not only supports a continuous integration strategy, but also significantly cuts down on cost and complexity -- resulting in faster deployments and faster time-to-revenue.
