Referencing Java API from SilkTest



Is it possible to make Java API calls directly from SilkTest using the InvokeJava() functionality?


As of now, Java API calls cannot me made from SilkTest using InvokeJava(). It (InvokeJava()) can be used to communicate and exchange data with Java files but it has to be invoked on a GUI object. Refer to the SilkTest help for more information on InvokeJava().

Work around:

Develop an external dummy GUI (e.g. a simple JFrame with a JButton) and call InvokeJava() on one of its objects. This will enable interaction with Java APIs from within SilkTest.
