    Can you build your own protocol?

    Maybe I'm making things up here, but somehow I seem to remember that there is some way to create your own protocol in Loadrunner?

    Maybe I'm thinking that Mercury can create one if there's enough demand (which, of course, makes sense).

    But I figured I'd throw the question out here because a quick Google search and a search of these forums didn't come up with any good hits that I saw.

    If I'm not crazy, anyone have any links on this topic?

    Re: Can you build your own protocol?

    I took a look at this in the past year and there is an API for developing custom protocols. For the life of me I cannot remember where on the HP site I found the info. I just remember that you had to somehow apply to HP to be able to use the tools. I would contact HP to get the information.

    Re: Can you build your own protocol?

    I remembered that the SDK install is in the "Additional Components" folder on the LR11 install disk.

    This is the section in the manual that I was thinking about:

    What You Need to Get from HP
    Contact HP LoadRunner support to get the following from HP:
    ➤ Approval for your protocol ID.
    ➤ Approval for the step prefix with which you must start the API function
    names.
    ➤ Approval for the file name prefix for any DLLs you create as part of the
    protocol implementation.
    ➤ Approval for registry entries.
    ➤ The assigned range of message IDs for use in your protocol.
    ➤ The toolkit, including samples, documentation, and executable code.
    ➤ Instructions for creating an installation kit for the Unix platforms you will
    support.
    ➤ A temporary license for your protocol to be used during development.
