    ************************************************** *****

    I'm testing an app that generates pre-formatted flat files. I'd like to use load runner to perform a file open, log parse by cursor positions, that I define. and then evaluate those parsed values against some set of hardcoded values.

    I'm either looking for some code snippets to do this in LR, or a open source log parser that is similar, I did a search for text file parser in sourceforge but it returned 1164 results. Since this forum is loaded with experienced professionals, I want to leverage some of the collective brain power within

    Thanks

    Re: Log Validating with LR?

    Mark, I'm curious. What you are describing sounds like functional testing (and doesn't appear to have a load testing component). Can you clarify, please?

    Re: Log Validating with LR?

    That's correct, I use LR for every testing task whether it be functional, automated or performance. When I can get it to brew me a Trappist ale, I'll use it for that too. =)

    Re: Log Validating with LR?

    Hmm. LR is a VERY poor choice for functional testing. Speaking from experience, I found it difficult enough just to code around exceptions in the application so the load test would run. I can't imagine using it for pure functional testing. Apart from the fact that it isn't a GUI tool (which obviously isn't an issue for the requirement you are describing), it lacks all the functions that a true functional test tool has as its "bread and butter."

    Best of luck with your task. You may find code fragments, but the possibility is rather remote I think.

    Re: Log Validating with LR?

    Well you can do parsing with C language, i had sometime back seen couple of artivles on the net if i am remember correctly but that was some kind of xml parser with C.Its been pretty long time.
    Well you can always use the c language for parsing or still better you can use java with LR(Pretty good choice compare to C).
    Again parsing it with shell or perl is more easy compare to other languages.

    Thanks Jake & Peter, the data within the link doesn't address my inquiry but it did give me some ideas and I bookmarked it for future use.
