Man, getting so discouraged...

I am trying to go through the AdvancED Flex 4 book. Was excited to do the Flex Unit testing. But turned out that my standard Flex Builder doesn't support it out of the box.

So I go to download FlexUnit, the archive file I got had a docs folder with nothing in it. It included 5 swcs and a jar, but no guidance what to do with them. Supposedly there is a turnkey project, but it's no where to be found.

All I want is a simple example that I can pull in and get started. Instead I'm wasting hours getting no where fast. Please advise, any chance you can offer an fxp that can just be opened and gone through. Thanks.

    Hey Jason,

    Sorry you are having such a hard time getting started.

    From the downloads page of the FlexUnit.org website (http://www.flexunit.org/?page_id=14) The First set of links are for the Turnkey Project. Download the version for Flex 3.x or 4.x.

    This is a zip file which contains an fxp you can import into Flash Builder. There is a file inside the src directory of that project called FlexUnit4Turnkey.mxml give that a run and you will see that it buzzes through several hundred unit tests.

    Its is a fully functional example of using suites, test cases and the runner.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, I must have missed that and confused when I downloaded the 2nd link.
    In which there was a docs folder with a bunch of empty sub folders.

    Much obliged for the quick response.

    - Jason
