We developed MSL at FINRA to respond to the needs of Agile teams leveraging layered architectures such as MVC. MSL enabled project teams to develop tests early and execute tests faster to meet the demands of the business.

FINRA's dedication to innovation and search for continual improvement in the testing space led to the invention of MSL in 2013. After multiple success stories with numerous projects across the organization, it was time for us to open source this great tool and share this fantastic concept to the open source community. With the rapid increase in the richness and complexity of client-side code, we believe MSL adds tremendous value for teams looking to develop higher quality web applications.

MSL was first showcased to meetup groups in DC and New York in April 2014, where it was well-received by these test automation communities. We open-sourced MSL in July 2014.
