Silk Test Classic Projects

Silk Test Classic projects organize all the resources associated with a test set and present them visually in the Project Explorer, making it easy for you to see your test environment, and to manage it and work within it.

Silk Test Classic projects store relevant information about your project, including the following:
  • References to all the resources associated with a test set, such as the following:
    • Data.
    • Frame files.
    • Include files.
    • .ini files.
    • Keyword-driven tests.
    • Option sets.
    • Results.
    • Script files.
    • Test plan files.
  • Configuration information.
  • Editor settings.
  • Data files for attributes and queries.
All of this information is stored at the project level, meaning that once you add the appropriate files to your project and configure it once, you might never need to do it again. Switching among projects is easy - since you need to configure the project only once, you can simply open the project and run your tests.

When you create a new project, Silk Test Classic automatically uses the agent that is selected in the toolbar.

Each project is a unique testing environment

By default, new projects do not contain any settings, such as enabled extensions, class mappings, or agent options. If you want to retain the settings from your current test set, save them as a options set by opening Silk Test Classic and clicking Options > Save New Options Set. You can include the options set when you create your project. You can create a project manually or you can let Silk Test Classic automatically generate a project for you, based on existing files that you specify.

Note: To optimally use the functionality that Silk Test Classic provides, create an individual project for each application that you want to test, except when testing multiple applications in the same test.
