SilverCreek allows the end user to automate testing by using scripts that utilize the remote API.
To use a prewritten script, first open a Tcl shell.
There is one located in SilverCreek’s BIN directory.
This is the script I will run shortly.
This script will run multiple tests against different agents and record the results to a journal file as well as a saved test file.
This can save a tester considerable time as they will not have to be present to click through SilverCreek’s GUI in order to do custom testing.
Users of SilverCreek Pro will have access to SilverCreek’s libraries and thus be able to write more in-depth scripts.
For more detailed information on this and other scripts, please click the button below.
Click the play button when you are ready to continue.
To run this script, I will type “source” followed by the script name at the command prompt.
The script is now opening SilverCreek and connecting with it as well as starting a journal file so that all test information will be saved for future reference.
Now the script is directing SilverCreek to open an agent configuration file and run multiple specific tests from test suites 1 and 10.
Now that SilverCreek has finished with test suites 1 and 10, it is saving the results and connecting to a different agent.
SilverCreek is now repeating the process by running tests from suite 3 and 10 on the new agent.
You will know the testing is finished when SilverCreek shuts down and the Tcl shell returns to the command prompt.
In the end, you see that this script has left you with three very useful things.
The journal log, which reports all details of your testing, the saved results file, which contains the results of your testing, and a pre-configured test bed for easy automation in a controlled testing environment.
