Data won\'t be saved after run test
I use OpenSTA for testing web performance. I record a script about submit a form to server. (the data in the form is saved to the database.)
When I run the test of this script for many times, I want to know whether the data of the form will be inserted to db or not. If the data won't be inserted to the db, I think the playback
Procedure is not real.
So please tell me the data will be inserted to the database or won't be inserted after I run the test.
Re: Data won\'t be saved after run test
OpenSTA has the ability to record HTTP traffic and create a script. This script just does exactly what happened in the recording (near enough), this is real. However, your Web application may rely on many external factors (usually session handling) to perform in its normal manner, therefore the exact replay is not guaranteed to have the same results as the original actions.
To replay in a meaningful manner occasionally needs you to do work in scripting correct session handling and error checking. There's more about this in the FAQ...
