I am currently evaluation different functional testing tools for Flex applications.
Many of those use the Adobe Automation Framework to access the components and their properties.
To compile my application I need to add some automation*.swc along with custom (application dependent) *.swc.
Some application require automation_rb.swc, other not.
So I was wondering, What are automation_rb.swc and automation_agent_rb.swc for exactly ?
Thank you in advance,
As other _rb.swc , automation related rb swc are also for localization support of the message strings. You can open the swc file using any zip utilty and can observer that these swc's contain a list of property files which will give the key vs message string in the appropriate language.
"Some application require automation_rb.swc, other not"
If your application is using automation libraries (either using -include-libraries or if your application is referring any of the automation classes), the resource bundle will also be expected to be present under the appropriate locale folders.
Thanks, I understand better now
