Java and Flex Builder 3


Flex Builder 3 is distributed as an Eclipse plugin and as a standalone IDE. The standalone version does not support Java development out of the box. These couple of blogs helped me to add Java to the standalone version.

cucumber-jvm and Android Studio

During this Winter holidays, I've been exploring a Behavior Driven Development and experimented with a couple of testing frameworks: Calabash and cucumber-jvm.

In this post, I would like to describe setting up cucumber-jvm for Android Studio projects.

I've extended cucumber-jvm examples with a version for Android Studio. Here is a copy in my github branch: https://github.com/mdzyuba/cucumber-jvm/tree/add_android_studio_example/examples/android/android-studio/Cukeulator.

In addition to the example code, here is some details on how it was created.

Dependencies
The cucumber-jvm requires several libraries to be added to a project: https://github.com/cucumber/cucumber-jvm/tree/master/android

I've found it's easier to add those dependencies with the Android Studio project setup dialog because it takes care of the jar versions for you.

Flash on Google Sites

This is a brief how-to add a Flash on a Google Site.

Google Sites allows adding Flash embedded into a Google Gadget. I uploaded a swf file to my Google Site - FlexWebTools and found a gadget that allows displaying any SWF on a Google Site page. It is called AnyFlash. It is pretty easy to use and it worked fine in my Firefox 3.5.5 on Mac OS X 10.5.8. Then I send a link to my site to my friends and they discovered that the SWF was not displayed properly on IE6 and in Firefox on Linux. I reviewed AnyFlash source code and eventually found that there is a bug 939 in the Google Gadget API. Therefore, I created a new gadget that does not use the gadgets.flash.embedFlash() method and works well with Firefox, Safari and IE6 browsers on Mac, Windows and Linux.

While working on the gadget, I found a few different ways of embedding Flash into a gadget. Some of them are pretty straightforward like simply pointing to a swf in the context tag. Some are more sophisticated. For instance, they would …

Using FlexUnit for Stress Testing

I saw quite a few questions in the forums on how to stress
test a Flex application. I thought about it and came up with an idea
that I want to share here.


I think FlexUnit can be used for stress testing. It is not
that difficult. I simply add multiple test runners for each client
application and run all of them asynchronously. Here is the example of
the FlexUnit runner:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" xmlns="*"
xmlns:flexunit="flexunit.flexui.*"
creationComplete="onCreationComplete()">

<mx:Script>
<![CDATA[
import flexunit.framework.TestSuite;
import test.TemperatureConverterTest;
import test.ArrayUtilTest;
import mx.collections.ArrayCollection;
import flexunit.flexui.TestRunnerBase;

[Bindable]
public var testClients:ArrayCollection;

public var NUMBER_OF_TESTS:int = 100;

private function onCreationComplete():void
{
