Micro Focus is proud to announce the release of Silk Test 20.0! If you already use Silk Test and you have a maintenance contract, you can upgrade to Silk Test 20.0 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 20.0

Service Virtualization

Web applications typically consist of an HTML-based front-end and back-end services, which provide particular functionality like credit-card processing or user-management. The front-end heavily depends on those back-end services, and if the back-end is not accessible or under development, it is hard or even impossible to continue testing the frond-end. With the new embedded SV capabilities of Silk4J, the backend services are no longer a bottleneck for development testers. Instead, you can simply simulate key services and avoid waiting for the back-end to be ready. Using SV with Silk4J is as simple as recording a test case.

The following video describes how you can use service virtualization with Silk Test.

Mobile Center Integration

Silk Test now integrates directly with Mobile Center.

This integration allows you to:

  • Leverage centrally managed mobile devices.
  • Conveniently reserve mobile devices for testing.
  • Effortlessly manage various versions of your mobile apps.
  • Easily select the appropriate app during testing.
  • Test your mobile apps across many platforms and devices.

The following video describes how you can use devices from Mobile Center with Silk Test.

Asset Merging in Silk Test Workbench

With Silk Test Workbench 20.0, you can merge the differences between two different assets of the same type or between two versions of the same asset.

You can merge the differences between assets or asset versions for the following asset types:

  • Visual test
  • .NET script
  • Object map

Support for Universal Windows Platform Apps

Silk Test 20.0 supports UWP apps on the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2019
