1  Announcements and General Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Unit Tests for my pureMVC proxies with asyncronous data. on: September 16, 2008, 12:03:47
...When my service proxies are instantiated they fire off a remote method to fill the data property of the proxy with an array of data from the server....

You can try this to get data from the server in your unit test:

         var timer:Timer = new Timer(1);
         //because the remote call will be asynchronous, then test it here
         var testSuccess:Function = function(evt:*= null):void {
            //for info on facade catching events
            if (facade.wasReceived(AuthenticationProxy.LOGIN_SUCCESSFUL)) {
               trace("testing async stuff");
            else {
               //test will loop until server return data
               timer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, addAsync(testSuccess, 10000));
         timer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, addAsync(testSuccess, 10000));

... Really sending a perviously stored notification just requires doing a super.SendNotificaiton call...
Thanks for the idea, here is a simple example of notjones concept:

      public var incommingNotificationAray:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection();
      public var sentNotificationArray:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection();
      override public  function sendNotification(notificationName:String, body:Object = null, type:String = null):void
         var aNotification:Notification = new Notification(notificationName, body, type);
      public function sendNote(notification:Notification):void {         
         super.sendNotification(notification.getName(), notification.getBody(), notification.getType());
      public function wasReceived(notificationName:String ):Notification {
         var i:int;
         var arr:Array = incommingNotificationAray.source;
         while(i < arr.length) {
              if(Notification(arr).getName()  == notificationName) {
                  return arr as Notification;
         return null;

      public function testSaveHistory():void {
         var historyProxy:HistoryProxy = registerProxy();
         facade.sendNotification(ApplicationFacade.SAVE_USER_ACTION, new HistoryVO());
         var receivedNote:Notification = facade.wasReceived(ApplicationFacade.SAVE_USER_ACTION);
         if(receivedNote) {
         assertTrue("there is 1 item in the history list", historyProxy.historyArray.length == 1);

....Give this approach a try and see if it will work for you.

Thanks, it works. Cool!
