Silk Performer’s .NET Framework enables developers and QA personnel to coordinate their development and testing efforts while allowing them to work entirely within their specialized environments: Developers work exclusively in Visual Studio while QA staff work exclusively in Silk Performer—there is no need for staff to learn new tools. Silk Performer’s .NET Framework thereby encourages efficiency and tighter integration between QA and development. The Silk Performer .NET Framework (.NET Framework) and .NET Add-On enable you to easily access Web services from within .NET. Microsoft Visual Studio offers wizards that allow you to specify the URLs of Web services. Microsoft Visual Studio can also create Web-service client proxies to invoke Web-service methods.
