I have used SilkTest for 5 years for client server (data driven) testing and now need to use a load testing tool for one of our Web applications. We use SilKTest for functional testing of the Web site.
So far it looks like it will handle the types of tests we need to do. However, when a test is recorded some of the information that is contained in the URL are GUID's for the selected item. The GUID's will be different each time it is run (on a new build or on a clean DB). Is there a way to capture the GUID's and use them inplace of the ones recorded?
Our goal is to create one set of tests so we can test different configurations of hardware, clusters, SQL vs Oracle etc.
Using LOAD RESPONSE_INFO BODY Identifiers you can accomplish that. You can capture dynamic data returning from the server and use them in your script.
More help is available in SCL help.
Using LOAD RESPONSE_INFO BODY can help you. You can capture dynamic data returning from the server and use them in your script, the problem with OpenSTa is that truncates it and does not return the whole page when it is a long file, we are talking here that I have a listo of 45 items to be returned using a table and also some ,more information beside the table and using 10 columns , the information is truncated.
But that could help you though if you have not a big response page.
