The application I test is a web application with many servers attending to the same client application. Any server can go down at any time. My issue is I cannot connect using SilkTest to run tests against one particular machine. If I am runnign tests against one server and it goes down I need to hop to another server just like the client application does and connect and run tests aganist that server.
Is there a way in SilkTest to find the active server or any other suggestions to work with such a scenario?
I run silk against the application front end, and if the server currently connected to is down then Silk Needs to identify it and change the option settings file where I have specified the server name.
Ahhh... I actually have a similar problem. I test against many servers and have to change my declarations accordingly. I never found a way to do this at runtime because I couldn't get some declarations to compile unless I used 'const'. I now comment in/out various files which each re-use the same constant names. If you figure out another way, please post it. I'll look into my scenario again and see if I can figure out what won't compile.
