    Silk 5.5

    Can any body tell me what's the big different in between Silk 5.0x vs. 5.5? the reason I am asking for that is we are not confident about we should upgrade to Silk 5.5 now?

    You'll probably get more and better responses if you ask this question in the SilkTest forum.

    Re: Silk 5.5

    The biggest difference is additional Web recognition using improved DOM extensions.

    The other difference is using SilkMeter for licensing. People have been wanting this for years. You finally have concurrent usage metering. Before 5.5, you were licensed to install and use SilkTest on a single machine. If you wanted to jump from machine to machine and stay legal, you'd have to uninstall and install from machine to machine as you went. This was a big complaint for those that spend time in the lab scripting and time at their desks scripting. Now you have a central license server that lets you have ST installed on as many machines as you like, you just can run them all at the same time.

    If you are going to be testing java applications, I have noticed a big improvement on playback speed with java apps.

    None is perfect, but 5.5 is an improvement over 5.0
