    Re: SilkTest and VMWare

    I've used VMWare and Silktest on a browser app without any issues. If you're testing a client/server app, I'd wait to get some feedback before implementing.

    Re: SilkTest and VMWare

    I use on Client/Server app and works like a charm. Is a little slow but not bad at all. I run 2 instances of VMWare at a time on machines with 1GB of RAM.

    Re: SilkTest and VMWare

    I'm using it with a Windows client/server app rinning on WinXP under VMWare and not having any issues. Performance is fine. Only slightly slower then running under a native machine.

    Re: SilkTest and VMWare

    Greetings, all --

    Currently I'm using Microsoft's Virtual PC 2004 for Silk Automation, and we're switching to VMWare Server.

    Rather than reinvent the wheel, I am hoping someone who has already written the interfaces would feel like sharing their code. Anyone willing?

    Also, if anyone wants my VM2k4 and logging classes I would be more than happy to post them.

    Thanks!

    Re: SilkTest and VMWare

    Hi, Dualtha
    I am using MS Virtual PC 2004 and Silk 7.6 on testing my app. It works OK and without any issues.
    My physical PC is P4 D-Process with 4G RAM, and I have set 2 Virtual PC with each 1G RAM (one 2K and one XP).
    I think the undo disk function is useful in Virtual PC and can help you restore to one clean machine very easily.

    Thanks,
    JJ

    Re: SilkTest and VMWare

    Jr_Major is more correct. I am looking for code snippets to drive the VMWare client.

    To illustrate, let me tell you how I do things on Microsoft VM 2004:

    I've created a SilkTest .inc file with my VMachineClass. The major functionality pieces are:

    Constructor: start the VM and other basic initialization
    Destructor: stop/reset the VM
    StartAgent: I don't want all the VMs I create to waste a VM licence, so I start them via scripting
    StopAgent: pretty obvious
    VMConnect: connect to the Agent
    VMDisconnect: also fairly obvious
    ...

    You get the idea. This allows me to run as many VMs as I need for testing, so programatically I can create any client/server environment I need on the fly.

    Now that the company is moving to VMWare, I need to expand the class to handle that software. Any snippets people have already wrote would be appreciated.

    Cheers!
    Dan Brandow
