Executing a Script Within a Script: Introduction

In this tutorial, you created a single script that performs every action required to receive an auto insurance quote from the web application. A single script is useful when implementing a basic test case against a simple application. However, most software testing requires a more rigorous approach that involves testing every aspect of an application. An additional requirement is the ability to rapidly update existing scripts whenever the test application changes.

To provide an efficient means for solving these testing challenges, Silk Test Workbench supports modular testing, in which you can "chunk" common sets of actions of a particular testing solution into a single test, and then reuse the script in other scripts that require the same set of actions.
