Announcing Silk Test 19.0

0 0 1,558


Micro Focus is proud to announce the release of Silk Test 19.0! If you already use Silk Test and you have a maintenance contract, you can upgrade to Silk Test 19.0 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.

Highlights of Silk Test 19.0

Shared Projects in Silk Test Workbench

Silk Test Workbench 19.0 introduces project dependencies to assist you in saving time and effort when handling complex testing requirements.

With this new functionality, Silk Test Workbench provides enhanced support for testing enterprise applications across multiple versions. The new project dependencies also provides enhanced reuse capabilities of existing projects and enable you to easily test multiple hotfixes or other minor versions of your applications.

Cross-Browser Testing on a Mac

You can now record and replay tests for web applications against Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome on macOS.

Dockerized Testing

Silk Test supports integrated continuous-integration (CI) and continuous-deployment (CD) pipelines by introducing the ability to run your Silk4J tests in Docker.

By introducing this new functionality, Silk Test enables you to include functional testing into your agile CI and CD process. Your functional tests can now be automatically triggered by any CI server, for example Jenkins, Bamboo, Team City, and so on. When using Dockerized testing with Silk Test, you can now easily and time-effectively add and provision new test environments.

Customization of Recording

Creating good identifiers for the items in your application under test is challenging. While Silk Test uses
sophisticated strategies to automatically generate the best possible locators and object map entry names during recording, these might not always cover your specific requirements. For example, the generated locator might not include an attribute that you want to be included, and the automatically generated object
map entry for a recorded object might be difficult to read or might contain special characters. With Silk Test 19.0, you can edit the locator and the object map entry for web controls directly from the recording UI. This new functionality is available for all supported desktop and mobile browsers except Internet Explorer.

Other enhancements

In addition to the highlights described above, Silk Test 19.0 introduces a range of other enhancements. For a complete list of the features and enhancements introduced with Silk Test 19.0, refer to the Silk Test 19.0 Release Notes.
