    JRE 1.4 and silk not working?

    Maybe it's just me, but I upgraded my JRE from 1.3.1 to 1.4 and now the application acts as if the segue jar file is not in the classpath. (I cannot see the objects inside each window). I'm using Silk 5.5 without patches.

    Before I went crazy trying to reinstall Silk and rebooting a million times, I figured I checked in here.

    Re: JRE 1.4 and silk not working?

    Hi Anthony,
    First check on the version of Java that your application was implemented in to make sure you are using the right jar file in the classpath. Next verify that the path is correct in the classpath, and that it uses the 8 character version of all directories in the path. If you do this and SilkTest still does not recognize more a few elements in the application, it is time to look at the application. You can run the Status.html or Status_JPI.html inside a browser which is provided with SilkTest. Both files are located in the directory where SilkTest is installed within the folders JavaEx\Status\Status.html. The Status.html file checks whether the Java support path references the .jar file that works with the browser’s native JVM. The Status_JPI.html is used to check your environment when testing an applet inside a browser which uses a different JVM. First look to see how the Java application is being launched. If the application is being launched from a *.bat file, look in the bat file to see whether the bat file specifies a classpath of its own. If the bat file does set a classpath, modify the bat file to add the SilkTest Jar file to the bat file's classpath.If the application is being launched using an application launcher, check the support files of the application launcher to see where it sets the classpath. Modify the support file to add the SilkTest Jar file to the application launcher classpath.If none of these approaches work, try copying the classpath into the application library directory, the launcher library directory, or another common directory that the application may load its jar files from.
    Good Luck. Just try.

    Re: JRE 1.4 and silk not working?

    Thanks for the reply, but this is not a setup issue, I just changed JRE from 1.3.1 to 1.4.

    It's funny because even though debugging is not documented anywhere, I did almost the exact same thing you did to troubleshoot my issue as soon as I found the problem. Glad to see some people are on the same level.

    Bottom line:
    My setup worked with JRE 1.3.1
    My classpath is correct.
    My batch file supports my classpath.
    Only variable is JRE 1.4.

    Anyone using JRE 1.4????

    Anthony

    Re: JRE 1.4 and silk not working?

    I'd be tempted to temporarily replace Silk's java1.2 folder with a copy the equivalant from java1.4 - leaving the "java1.2" folder name alone.

    That way both Silk and your application are on the "same page".

    SilkTest 5.5 Service Pack 1 does not claim support for Java version 1.4:

    From the Release Notes:
    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">quote:</font><HR>
    The SilkTest Java extensions were tested against:
    Sun's Java Developer's Kit (JDK)
    versions 1.1.8, 1.2.2 and 1.3
    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Re: JRE 1.4 and silk not working?

    This is where all the fun will now begin with Segue Tech support!

    Thanks for the release note clippings...
    I am going to return to 1.3.x JRE for now.

    I am in the same boat, neither silk nor winrunner support JDK 1.4

    The word from the Segue folks at the Software Test Automation conference in San Jose this week is that JDK 1.4 will be supported in a service pack available on the Segue website this Friday (3/29/02).
