Is SilkTest Non- Intrusive?

Is SilkTest Non- Intrusive?

When implementing SilkTest to test your application, does the source of the application need to be expanded by adding additional statements or dll"s.

SilkTest is Non-Intrusive in the sense that the source of your application does not usually need to be modified to accommodate SilkTest. SilkTest works by intercepting calls between the Windows API and the application under test.

There is usually no need to modify your application in order to allow SilkTest to obtain object recognition of the controls within the application.
