In a client/server environment, Silk Test Classic drives the client application by means of an Agent process running on each application’s machine. The application then drives the server just as it always does. Silk Test Classic is also capable of driving the GUI belonging to a server or of directly driving a server database by running scripts that submit SQL statements to the database. These methods of directly manipulating the server application are intended to support testing in which the client application drives the server. For additional information on this capability, see Testing Databases.
