Does SilkPerformer support testing an application that is built with the SPRING framework?
When considering whether SilkPerformer will support a particular application it is important to understand how SilkPerformer works. SilkPerformer comes with many applications supported out of the box but SilkPerformer does not work with applications specifically, it uses Protocols, API? and Frameworks to test.
Therefore if the Spring Framework uses:
HTTP protocol? Very likely that SilkPerformer can support it through http record/replay
Web Services? Very likely that SilkPerformer can support it via Java Explorer or .Net Explorer
RMI? Possible that SilkPerformer can support it depending on how the RMI framework has been employed.
Or alternatively you may be able to create a test driver using our own Java Frameworks support.
Another option may be to use GUI Level testing. This method relies on the point and click user simulation as opposed to protocol or API recording normally adopted by SilkPerformer.
