Silktest Interview Question 77 - How to download latest SilkTest 2009 trial version?

Last week Micro Focus, a leading provider of enterprise application modernization, testing and management solutions, announced the availability of SilkTest 2009 R2 and Silk4J 2009 R2 from Borland Software Corporation. Without a doubt Silk Test 2009 is quality choice for automated regression and functional software testing, but I wonder why Micro Focus labels the latest Silk Test version as 2009 R2. It is 2010 already, so label this famous automation test application as SilkTest 2010. The trial version of SilkTest is available for free download.

The latest version of SilkTest 2009 R2 also includes the following significant enhancements

Improved Open Agent Technology – Dynamic Object Recognition allows for a decoupling of an application's Graphical User Interface (GUI) object hierarchy from its representation in test scripts, resulting in significantly lower script maintenance.

Advanced synchronization capabilities eliminate the need to modify test scripts to include wait times, providing advanced automation for testing today’s dynamic Web applications.

Full cross-browser AJAX support – Silk Test now provides completely automatic synchronization for testing Web2.0 applications on Firefox 3.0 and 3.5 as well as Internet Explorer, 6, 7 and 8 through its open agent technology.

Enhanced support for system functions by the SilkTest Open Agent.

Dynamic Port Allocation – The SilkTest Open Agent also now uses dynamically allocated ports. The dynamic port allocation feature for the open agent makes it possible to leverage the supported technologies for SilkPerformer 2009 R2 GUI value unit tests.
