Subject RE: Testing Framework Site Update

>Correct, but as I understand them, Mustella tests are pretty specific to components (e.g.,
display objects). Does the rest of the framework have some sort of test coverage, or am I
misunderstanding Mustella?

You can think of mustella tests as executing a series of actions or steps against an object
and having the ability to wait for event to do property or even image comparison.  So far
as I know, the only 'test coverage' numbers that Adobe used to define their test coverage
came from running the mustella suite... so any other APIs were exercised by the use of mustella
component interactions. Further, and maybe Alex can comment on this as I do not know for sure,
I believe the test coverage information quoted by Deepa and others used the coverage plugin
on labs they built for Flash Builder. This used the profiler API and was effectively fairly
useless method coverage.

For example:

function doThing( val:* ):void {

 if (!val) {

//5000 more lines in this method


Therefore if this method was called with a null, the whole method and all the code that did
not belong in it was considered 'covered'
