    Anyone used SilkBeans?

    Hi, everyone;
    Iím currently evaluating SilkTest and WinRunner. I know there are many entries posted on this topic in general, but I specifically would like to know if anyone has any experience using the SilkBeans component of SilkTest on java UNIX clients. This functionality would be very useful to us in not needing to port our scripts to a second tool if it works well, but I have no way to test that piece right now. If someone has used this, can you tell me how you found it: works great, standard difficulty, very difficult, not worth the time, etc. Also, how did you handle any differences (if there were any) in the application between the Windows and UNIX versions. Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks.

    It works pretty well actually. Setup is quite straightforward if you follow the instructions in the on-line help. It is not as full featured as the agent but for the price (free!) it is definitely worth it.

    Re: Anyone used SilkBeans?

    We have used it a little bit and I totally agree with the previous response.

    Silk has a "GUI specifier" that you can use to handle situations where things are different on different operating system type platforms. Beign that you're doing an eval I'm assuming you have a copy of Silk so won't provide the details here. Just go into the Help then the Find tab and search for things like "GUI specifier", "GUITYPE", "msw" for more info.

    I havent heard about SilkBeans in about 5 years. Does Borland even support it?

    Re: Anyone used SilkBeans?

    Using Silk test Windows & Linux/unix is very easy (Assume your app is Java or Motif, If its Web no luck

    Yes, i assume Borland still supports Silkbean with Silktest 7.6 or above

    http://www.borland.com/us/products/s...est/index.html

    SilkBeansô delivers the "write once, run anywhere" advantage of Java and lets users run existing scripts on multiple Unix-based systems without modification


    1) Silk test software runs on windows

    2) Agent runs on non windows

    3) Use the silk bean to connect from ST(win) to agent(non win)

    4) Check the connect silk bean

    Under Menu - Options - Agent Options - Other Tab - check Enable Silk bean

    5) Options - Run time - type IP of Non windows

    6) Check Agent network

    7) Run the test from Silk test to agent
