Mobile testing in jmeter
we are using google chrome's emulation from there we are selecting a device for emulating the site and then we recording it through jmeter. we have also used user swticher agent addon in chrome and firefox to emulate and recorded using jmeter .Is this the right approach for mobile testing using jmeter??
I have a doubt if the emulator may not be similar in performance and behaviour to actual device. How are you going to ensure to what percent the emulator is reliable?
You can simulate different mobile devices by changing User-Agent header via HTTP Header Manager. However it makes sense only if different content is being served based on User-Agent string as JMeter acts on protocol level and doesn't actually "render" response.
