load test trading application
      #688132 - 10/11/11 03:44 AM

I'm trying to load test a trading application developed using c# thro' Load Runner. I had tried with winsockets and .net protocols. but lr is not reading any events of the application. Can anyone help me out with how to record a .net application in lr???

How much experience do you have with LoadRunner? Have you been formally trained?

Unless you are writing a compiler, strtok is NOT the answer.

QAF is still an exercise in self-sufficiency! (Thank JB!)

Hi all
I also want to add my knowledge although its a little but may be help full
Testing Your Trading System
The vast majority of trading applications that support programming languages also support testing tools. These tools are divided into two categories:

1. Technical
Technical testing tools search for technical errors in your code. For example, if you forget to add a semicolon after a statement, the technical testing tool will notify you that your statement is invalid.
The location of the technical testing tool depends on the trading application being used. MetaTrader displays an error or flawed results when you try to compile your code, while trading applications like Tradecision have a "code check" utility built into the interface that lets you check your code for errors before applying it.

2. Logical
Logical testing tools search for logical errors in your code. For example, if you happened to use a "greater than" sign instead of a "less than" sign (which is not a technical error), a logical testing tool will show you that your results don't make sense.

The most popular logical testing tool is the backtesting tool.This tool allows you to take past data and apply your trading system to that data. This gives you an idea of the following:

Whether your trading system is a profitable one
What conditions prove to be most profitable
Where any errors in your rules might exist

rkndl, I'm not convinced that's what the OP is on about...

that would be functional testing of a system for making trades on a trading system, given that this is a loadrunner forum, I suspect that the OP is talking about performance testing of the software and hardware for the actual trading platform

kezi, could you please be a bit more specific about the architecture of the application?

is it a thin (browser) or thick client?

what is the communication protocol between the client and the server?

is it push or pull technology?

the more information that you provide, the more likely you are to get a useful response...
