    citrix based tool vs web based tool

    Hi,
    I have this application which is published via citrix.
    The users access this application through a webbrowser.
    Till now I was in the process of evaluating tools which could test this application. So I was looking for Citrix specific tools. But now iv got to thinking that do i really need a citrix specific tool at all or not.

    Since the application can be accessed through a web browser cant a tool which can test a web application do the job?

    Pls provide your inputs. Im really confused.

    Thanks.

    Your web browser may be your core application that you start, but the odds are that your ICA communication is handled by a browser add in and is no longer speaking an HTTP derivative once you get to the Citrix session.

    Re: citrix based tool vs web based tool

    If the application is a regular HTTP application that just displays the HTTP response in the browser, you need not use the citrix protocol. You can use the web protocol and emulate the load from the citrix servers (as load generators).

    But if the application is not a typical HTTP application and is going to provide streaming content to the user, it would be better if you test it through citrix.

    Animations within a page and video streaming applications can affect citrix performance heavily.

    But if your requirement is that you really need to assess the performance from the end user perspective, you should use citrix protocol. However, you won't be able to test with a variety of pages since everything is at the GUI level (images).
