Subject [Automation] Could we loose automation for legal or business reasons?
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2012 08:18:51 GMT


You mention 'business kinks' in regards to automation. It would be 
unfortunate for this project to loose that capability in the framework 
due to business reasons. The automation library is fairly old (in 
internet terms) and used by a lot of Flex customers and testing 
tool/service providers (8-10 of them if not more). With Monocle ramping 
up as a product it would be sad to see the Apache Flex testing ecosystem 
being disseminated for it's commercial sake when there is no real 
competitor to it (even with automation).

Is there a need to raise this issue collectively with decision makers 
involved in the 'business kinks' to influence this decision?
