what is the best/easiest way for maual correlation
what is the best method for manual correlation? i use this method and please tell me if there is easier or better method...(1)from the generation log, I find the first occurrence of the value which I want to correlate, I find the first occurrence in the response body
(2)this response body contain an id, I look for the ADD EVENT with the same id, then in the script I find this ADD EVENT to determine the location where I should insert my correlation
(3)I look at the REPLY log, and find the value which I want to correlate, by that I determine the boundaries
Is there a better and easier way?
Re: what is the best/easiest way for maual correla
1. I do something almost similar. I try to ind the value to correlate from the script - and then search for it in the generation log.
2. Let Auto Correlation (Ctrl F8) do the 'finding' for you, after doing a replay. but I then do the manual insertion of the wrsp and the boundaries rather than let the Vugen do the auto correlation.
3. Record scripts with i. Alternate User Ids ii. Different User Input values and check for differences - that helps me identify the values to correlate.
4. When I get the hang of it, I write my own correlation rules and let VuGne handle them. for example for a recent dot net app, I used the Mercury provided viewstate correlation rule in conjunction with my own custom correlation rules for event validation and other values. I figured Vu Gen must have inserted 90+ wrsp statements handling these values thruout by script. I probably saved quite a bit of time by creating my own custom rules for the auto correlation thn doing it all manually.

I use a similar method.
1)Find the value to be correlated from the script itself.
For this, I search for the changing value of the parameter from the replay log.
2)Search the boundaries from the tree view -> Replay server response.
And then use WRSP function.
