Creating a New Project

To create a new Java Explorer project:

  1. Start Java Explorer. The Create or open a project dialog box opens.
  2. Click the Create a New Project option button.
  3. Type a name for the project into the text box.
    Note: The project name cannot be longer than 19 characters and cannot contain certain special characters, for example *, ., or !.
  4. Click OK. The new project is created and the Java Explorer Web GUI opens. A new folder, which contains all the files required by the project for operation, is created in the project directory. The default project directory is <my documents>\Silk Performer 21.0\Projects.
  5. Navigate to Tools > Project Settings > Web Service Plugin .
  6. Select the Web service plug-in (SOAP stack) that is required for your tests. Because of incompatibilities between different SOAP stacks, you cannot change the SOAP stack once it is used by Java Explorer. Web Service plug-ins that are used, are grayed out in the list box.
