i recorded a script using winsock protocol and its not running. some experts express a doubt that i may need to do correlation. but its C/S applicaton talking to oracle database on AIX server. adn to my knowledge i do not have any value to be parameterised because my application takes any value as far as my transaction is concerned. my script fails at socket connection.
can any body help me in resolving this. or is there any good documentation available in the net (i refered load runner help documentation already and not very helpful).
'...some experts express a doubt that i may need to do correlation...'
Time to doubt your experts. In eight years of loadrunner use I have never run across an application (outside of one constructed for training purposes) which does not require at least one element to be correlated.
There is a whole Chapter in the "Creating Virtual users Guide (version 7.6)" on correlation. Pages 111-119. Likewise, pages 273-313 will provide ample information on working with Winsock scripts.
A copy of the documentation is shipped with every loadrunner purchase and a soft copy is installed in PDF form when you install loadrunner.
However, give your inquiry I still wonder why you have chosen Winsock and not Oracle for your script virtual user type? It could be that those same experts are having their fun with you.
