What is the functional difference between SilkPerformer 2006* and its SOA edition?
SilkPerformer SOA edition is essentially a cut-down version of SilkPerformer, geared towards developer requirements. It allows you to record and execute HTTP(S)/XML (SOAP), Java and .NET test scripts only.
It allows the testing of the following technologies, using SilkPerformer SOA Workbench, SilkPerformer Java Explorer and SilkPerformer .NET Explorer:
- Web services;
- Enterprise Java Beans;
- Java RMI objects;
- Java classes;
- .NET remoting objects;
- .NET classes
In-depth back-end server monitoring capabilities are available as a "Server Analysis Module" add-On.
Please note that the following limitations of SilkPerformer CTE ("Component Test Edition", the predecessor of SilkPerformer SOA Edition) no longer apply if you upgrade to SilkPerformer SOA Edition:
- 5 simultaneous virtual users maximum;
- Usage of a single CPU and agent machine only;
- No base lining to automatically calculate timer thresholds;
- Simple workflow only
