Silk4J Unable to run Test with updated application

Silk4J is no longer able to run the java application that is being tested.  The application was patched but, the developers say the only thing updated was a configuration file ...

I reinstalled Silk Test and the application being tested but, no luck with either one.

In True Log I get -


Script XXX_Test.java

Test Caes Main

Before Method baseState

Unable to find object - Error: time out expired after launching application.  The requested object "xxx" was not found within the timeout of 30 seconds.

Call Stack shows - baseState.execute(desktop)

I edited the application configuration.  Deleted the old entry and added a new one.

Also right after I start a command window pops open and immediately closes.  I have tried to catch it but have had no luck.

RE: Silk4J Unable to run Test with updated application

Hi JimP,

It sounds like your BaseState information may not be correct based on the command window that opens and then immediately closed.

If you manually launch your application and then try to execute your Silk4J tests, do the tests work?

As you are testing a Java application, it is possible that there is some dynamic information in the command line pattern. Can you edit your existing application configuration, clear the command line pattern and verify if this has any effect on the problem?
