Test enabled Flex applications on a local test computer

Testers can test a Flex application that is embedded in an HTML wrapper on a local test computer.

Before you begin

Before testing a Flex application locally, verify that the .swf file is trusted. Also ensure that you add the application in the Application Configuration tool, enable the required JRE and set your default Web browser.

To test locally the Flex application that is enabled for IBM Rational Functional Tester:


  1. Request the HTML wrapper from the file system.

  2. Open the HTML page in the browser.

  3. Start IBM Rational Functional Tester.

  4. Start testing the HTML application that contains the embedded Flex application.
