I am new to load runner and have basic questions to ask you.
1. Our application is being developed using Java applets.What version of LR will be the best?
2. What is the diff between Astra test and LR.Can I use LoadRunner to test the Java Applet load on server.
3. How do I call the Winrunner script into Load runner for end-toend testing. Give me some code for this if you can.
4. CAn I record java applets and client server app made in VB using same loadrunner . Do I have to make changes or use normal recording mode.
5. How can I find response time using different browsers.
If possible provide me simple step by step explanations for this with codes. It is very ******.
thanking you in advance.
Re: Loadrunner difficulties
In answer to your questions....
1. The latest one available! It depends on the version of Java (JDK) your application was developed with, whether it uses third party toolsets, CORBA etc.
There are various user types in LoadRunner, there is a generic Java virtual user and then some more specific ones CORBA-Java etc.
You should note that the licensing is usually tied into the type of virtual user, you will be using, so you may want to check that your license allows you to use the specific type(s) you'll need...
2. Astra, as far as I know only includes a Web User. You won't be able to use a Java user as well as a Web one with Astra only with LoadRunner.
3. There is a specific winrunner virtual user. Note, you'll only be able to run one user per machine with this option. You would be better off converting the actions in your winrunner scripts to LoadRunner and running with those.
4. Again you should be able to do both using two different types of virtual user. Depends again of if your license covers both. There are a multitude of different client-server user types in LoadRunner depending on the client-server architecture in use. Have a look at the VUgen app or the documentation.
5. You can emulate different browser types in LoadRunner as a runtime setting. See the documentaion on runtime settings.
Hope this helps,
