Advanced Usage

Using a Java Framework script template requires that you have only a basic knowledge of the available Java Framework functions. If a Java test driver is already available for reuse, then a template project can be generated in which the Java test class acts as an interface between the original test driver and the Silk Performer script.

Java test drivers can also be invoked directly from Silk Performer scripts. Normally, you have to update the BDL script, the Java test class, and the Java test driver. By calling the Java test driver directly, you avoid having to update the Java test class. To call a test driver directly from BDL, additional syntax is often required to call static and overloaded methods or to reuse complex objects.
