The built-in recovery system
The built-in recovery system is one of SilkTest's most powerful features,
because it allows you to run tests unattended with confidence. The failure of
a single testcase shouldn't stop the rest of your tests from running. With
SilkTest, when your application fails, the recovery system restores your
application to a stable state, known as the BaseState. This allows the rest of
your tests to continue even when a preceding test has failed. The recovery
system will be discussed in more detail in
"Understanding How the Recovery
System Works" on page 110
. You can also see the online Help for more
information about the recovery system.
