For more than two decades, Adobe Systems, Inc.award-winning technologies and software have redefined business, entertainment, and personal communications by setting new standards for producing and delivering content that engages people anywhere at anytime. Recently, Chris Walcott, Flash developer and quality assurance guru, took the time to tell us how TestComplete has helped them test and develop Flash MX 2004 and Flash 8.
Project: Flash MX 2004 and Flash 8
Before Flash MX 2004 shipped we knew that we were going to have some performance issues. After release, the reality hit home pretty hard once customer feedback started pouring in. There were several areas that we knew we had to address. Because there were other areas in the program that needed attention, we decided to do a "dot" release of the product. The development cycle was about 9 months and not the usual 18 that we do for a major release. Management assigned one dev and one qa engineer to work on performance. While we decided on what areas to focus on, we also began research on what tools we could use to facilitate the testing. The team already owned one license for Silk but it was already in use and we did not have the budget to buy more licenses. We found AutomatedQA's TestComplete and decided to give it a trial and eventually bought 3 licenses.
