An austinite!

We've been investigating this as well and no such luck.  The only ones I've=
 seen cost money and use pixel comparison (which is suckadelic).

I'm a firm believer (until proven otherwise) that flash components are virt=
ually untestable on the client end from an automated standpoint.

Subject: [Webtest] Web test with Flex...

I know this is kind of a stretch but has anyone used Webtest to test Flex b=
ased applications.  (I understand that Flex generates shockwave files which=
 might not be supported by Webtest.)

Could someone recommend a free utility like webtest that I could use?

I'm aware of FlexUnit, but I'd like something more like webtest.

Big Mike
