Borland is proud to announce the release of Silk Test 15.0! If you already use Silk Test and you have a maintenance contract, you can upgrade to Silk Test 15.0 for free.

Silk Test is a fast, reliable, and efficient test automation solution for development, quality, and business teams who need to deliver software faster. Silk Test allows you to create cross browser scripts that run on multiple desktop and mobile browsers without any modifications, which is key to reduce the effort for creating and maintaining scripts. As product software-delivery cycles increase in pace, quality tends to suffer with the introduction of defects and bugs – Silk Test helps find those bugs earlier in the life-cycle.

Silk Test 15.0 introduces the following significant enhancements:

Highlights of Silk Test 15.0

Cross-browser testing brought to mobile browsers

Run existing scripts on mobile Android-based devices to verify that your Web 2.0 application will work on mobile devices as well. There is no need to create an additional script, which can be executed only on the mobile device; you can simply re-use the existing browser script that you have created for the desktop-browsers.

Easy Record and Replay

The new unified workflow makes it easy to record and replay scripts against any application. Even mobile browser recording is included and comes with a new intuitive and more interactive way of recording. This guarantees a much better script and a more realistic test result, as you can select what should be in the script during the actual recording.

Configuration Testing

You can build “virtual” configurations without having to buy or configure physical machines. You can link Silk Test through Silk Central Connect to your own Amazon cloud and use the pre-configured Amazon images to reduce the infrastructure burden.

Extend Existing Tests

Do you have a test that is incomplete or needs to be extended to include additional workflows? Simply click the Record Actions button within the existing test and all the recorded actions are added to the test.

Simplified Silk Test Workbench Login

Are you tired of providing your credentials every time you start up Silk Test Workbench? Now you can log-in with your Windows credentials. You can now also remove the default admin user as soon as you have created another user with administrator rights.

Usability and Technology Updates

The Silk Test development teams have again worked hard to increase the usability of Silk Test by implementing all required currency updates and several minor but valuable changes and features.
