SilkTest Interview Question 72: How to use SilkTest in agile testing?

I believe there is no doubt that certain agile manifesto principles, such as "welcome changing requirements, even late in development" or "deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale" would make SilkTest test automation engineer wince. Does it mean SilkTest that automated script for complicated business requirement created yesterday won't work tomorrow or test automation engineer would have less time to develop SilkTest scripts which can transform as often as requirement? Fortunately Silk Test works very well in agile environment. The agile development delivers new functionality every round, and this requires automated regression testing. The automation test engineer has to work in parallel with development team on automated tests. The crucial point for successful implementation of SilkTest scripts is making sure that the developers name all object, one more helpful approach is to set up daily continuous builds and run the scripts to make sure that the new build didn't break any SilkTest 2008 scripts.
