Subject Re: [RT] Recommendation Unit-Test System?

Maven (and Flex Mojos)?

It can be a PITA to setup/maintain, but can run Flex unit tests in a
headless environment (i.e. no FP/AIR runtime installation needed, i
don't believe).

I've been on projects that run Maven in conjunction with CI ant
scripts (Lunt, Hudson/Jenkins, et al).

As a side note, it is very nice to discuss experiences of said
implementations with enterprise teams, especially because when they
learn that Flex can be tested repeatedly in such situations without
manual intervention, similar to Java and .Net, they get a little
happier (not much, but a little).
