    State of RPT ?

    Could I get some opinions on the current state RPT (Version7), specifically from folks who have had experience with the pre-java,VU, Perf/Test Studio implementation ? Last time I checked, things like manual correlation and the extraction of some key statistics involved a fair amount of java coding. If this is still true for the latest release, how easy to implement, effective, and reliable where these workarounds ?
    -thanks

    Re: State of RPT ?

    I could let you know in about 6-12 months... we're mid conversion ourself. It's hard to ween ourselves off the old VU tool because we've been immersed in it for the last 4 years and write some really advanced and nifty tests that we currently don't know how to do in the new RPT tool.

    Speaking for myself, I'm not well versed with Java so I'm probably a little biased because I need to learn java moreso than the inner workings of the tool itself.

    Thanks - I know the feeling, I go back 9 years with Perf Studio.

    Hey man! How's it going! I was just in Boston, I should have thought to look you up!

    6.x is mostly useless for anything except testing the demo (IMHO), rumor has it that 7.0 is "much better" -- but I don't know what that means. Shoot me an email and I'll put you in touch with the "rumor mill".

    Re: State of RPT ?

    I've just started using RPT 7 and its definitely a big improvement over RPT 6 which I gave up on :-)

    I am still finding it hard to adjust using RPT since it tries to do alot of clever stuff under the covers and I'm just not comfortable trusting a tool.

    I managed to write a basic performance test in RPT yesterday in under 2 hours, where as it took me 2 days to develop the same test in Robot.

    I'm going to start using the RPT more, but I'll definitely still have Robot around as a backup.

    Try adding custom code to export values and keep track of transaction times...

    Can you specify what clever stuff you were talking about?

    "I am still finding it hard to adjust using RPT since it tries to do alot of clever stuff under the covers and I'm just not comfortable trusting a tool."

    Maybe I'm just not that familiar with the tool but I'd say its as useful as a slow nose bleed.

    Ok, so here maybe a quick tissue [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    After running your tests in RPT 7.0 export your test log to which is XML, you can then write a jazzy little ruby script and Xpath your way to pulling out valuable information.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Select File -> Export

    Then here is where you name the location of the file to be written and the file extension so if you on windows
    C:\example.xml

    Press next and select the test execution history and there ya go.
