We study the self-forces acting on static scalar and electric test charges in the spacetime of a Schwarzschild black hole. The analysis is based on a direct, local calculation of the self-forces via mode decomposition and on two independent regularization procedures: a spatially extended particle model method and on a mode-sum regularization prescription. In all cases we find excellent agreement with the known exact results.
