Is Mercury trying to abolish the correlation step?
In an attempt to make scripting easier is this true?
Anyone heard about it.
I got an email about some new technology coming called Web Click and Script Technology.
Is this another repackaging of the same stuff or a sales angle?

Looks like "Astra" Redux to me.

Could potentially be an interesting technology. I view it as a more likely replacement for people who view GUI virtual users as "the method" for testing anything.
Will this lower the bar for entrance into using LoadRunner? It really should not. Scripting is a software development exercise and no matter which protocol or language you use (LoadRunner already supports C, Java and VB virtual user types for some protocols + Visual Studio Template stuff), you still have to follow good development practices. The same holds especially true when you have a GUI dependency.
There are going to be some skills transfer possibilities when you look at the script itself and how the object definitions are managed (once again, think of an update to the Astra QuickTest Environment), but competant QTP people are just as difficult to come by (in some cases) as are LoadRunner people.
I tend to view this just as I view Tree view. Interesting, but let me just turn it off so I can get some real work done.
Replace ineffective offshore contracts, LoadRunnerByTheHour
. Starting @ $19.95/hr USD.
Put us to the test, skilled expertise is less expensive than you might imagine.
