Creating your Web Application Tests

Directly after installing Silk Central Connect and configuring Subversion, you can create a new project for your Web application. Then you can use the built-in verification run to take a first screenshot of the Web application in each of the browsers that are available on your local machine.

  1. On the Silk Central Connect panel, click New Project. The New Project dialog box displays.
  2. If you are using Silk Central Connect in a full Silk Central environment, you can choose to add your new Silk4J project to an existing Silk Central project or to create a new Silk Central project.
  3. If you are creating a new project, type a name for the new project into the Project Name field.
  4. Type the URL of the test application into the URL field.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Optional: If you are testing an internal Web application on your intranet using cloud-based execution servers, click Tunnel Settings and select Local intranet website. With this setting, the Silk Central application server opens a tunnel to cloud-based execution servers and acts as a proxy to allow testing a website in your local intranet. Note that this option is slower than a direct connection, so only select it if needed.
  7. Click Run Tests.
  8. Select all available configurations.
  9. Click Run Tests.
  10. Click Refresh to see if the execution is finished.
  11. When the execution is finished, click on the start time link. You can see the test result for every configuration. The default test case is called validateAppearance.
  12. Click on the test result of the first configuration. You can see details for the test result, including a screenshot of the test application. You can click on the screenshot to enlarge it.
  13. Click through the results to see how the application looks on all configurations.

    Tip: You can use the Left and Right keyboard keys to switch between the results.
