JMeter record & playback feature
We are developing a Licensing Product- consists of 2 part. One License Management & Key Generation and Other one is License Monitoring & Maintenance including Log data. We are in a tight project schedule & expected to deliver our First release end of December. I am involved in testing activity & PM has asked me to do some amount of Automation using JMeter. This is in terms of creating/loading initialized Data after DB refresh (often done after new build is checked-out), required to carry out end-to-end testing. As far as I understand this can be done using one of the Record & Playback tools like Winrunner. However, I am not sure if the same (record & playback) can be done through JMeter.
If anyone of you has done this before(using JMeter) please help me in this regard. I would highly appreciate your help.
Thanks & Regards
Re: JMeter record & playback feature
If your application is web based and the protocol is http/https, then you can very well do whatever you want.
But you have to understand onething. In JMeter or in any loadtesting tools, the script would be URL based. In functional testing tools, it would be GUI based (mostly).
Just go through the capabilities of JMeter and use it for your application. Other than JMeter there are number of functional testing tools (free) available. So just do some search in the net and choose your tool.
