Outlining a Project

  1. Click Start here on the Silk Performer workflow bar.
    Note: If another project is already open, choose File > New Project from the menu bar and confirm that you want to close your currently open project.
    The Workflow - Outline Project dialog box opens.
  2. In the Name text box, enter a name for your project.
  3. Enter an optional project description in Description.
  4. From the Type menu tree, choose the type of application that you want to use in your test.
    Note: If you are testing a Web application, choose the Web business transaction (HTML/HTTP) option to create simpler scripts while incorporating advanced functionality. Choose the Web low level (HTTP) option if you want to put the highest possible load on your application. Web low level scripts are more complex than Web business transaction scripts, which require more effort to customize. It is recommended that you use the Web business transaction (HTML/HTTP) instead of the Web low level (HTTP) scripts for browser based applications.
  5. Click Next.
    Note: If you need to add additional resources to the project, right-click the project icon in the Project menu tree view. It is particularly important that all the user data files (.csv), random data files (.rnd), and .idl files needed by Silk Performer are set up for your project.
The Workflow - Model Script dialog box appears.
