    Silk support for Netscape

    Wanting to know about Silk's support for Netscape Navigator.
    How difficult would it be to use/maintain Scripts developed for IE5.0 against Netscape?

    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    SilkTest supports up to version 6.0 of Netscape. Setup your frame file using Virtual Object (VO) and you will be able to replay against IE as well.

    You shouldn't have any major problems. You will more than likely have some slight changes in object recognition and some nesting structures of objects, such as tables.

    In my experience I've never been able to use the same script or include file without some modifications, but it also depends on how complex your web aplication is.


    Regarding the VO, you should set this up in Options -> Extensions and Extension enabler in the SilkTest Program group from the Start menu, when you create future frame, window declarations and object recognition, if you want to do cross-browser testing. If you have existing files, make the necessary mods (you might also find the browser specific tags useful).

    select vo as your extension for ie. i pulled this snippet from the online help....

    To enable an extension on your target machine:

    1 Make sure that your browser is closed.

    2 From the SilkTest program group, choose Extension Enabler. To invoke the Extension Enabler on a remote non-Windows target machine, run extinst.exe, located in the directory on the target machine in which you installed the SilkTest Agent.

    3 Enable support for the extensions you want to use, if they are not already enabled. To get information about the files used by an extension, select an extension and click Details.

    4 Click OK to close the Extension Enabler dialog.

    Note If you enable support for ActiveX in this dialog, make sure that it is enabled in the Extensions dialog as well.

    5 Restart your browser, if you enabled extensions for web testing.

    To enable an extension on your host machine:

    1 Start SilkTest and select Options/Extensions. To get information about the files used by an extension, select an extension and click Details. For information about fields on the Options/Extensions dialog, see Options/Extensions dialog help.

    2 On the Extensions dialog, click the extension you want to enable.

    3 Enable Other extensions, such as Java and ActiveX, as appropriate. For information on fault trapping, see Overview of fault trapping.

    4 Disable other extensions that you will not be using by selecting Disabled in the Primary Extension field. To disable a Visual Basic extension, clear the ActiveX check box for the Visual Basic application.

    5 Click OK to close the Extensions dialog.
