    XPath

    Objects can be identified several ways in TruClient.  The recommended way is to use Automatic whenever possible.  Unfortunately, this doesn’t always work.  One of the best solutions is to use XPath.  Under the Object sections you have the ID Method.  This is usually set to Automatic.  You can also change this to XPath, which allows you to see the XPath value or to JavaScript which allows you to add code arou Read Entire Entry

    Parameters

    Define your parameters just like you normally would for an HTTP script.
    There are several ways you can use parameters in a script.  The easiest way is to change the argument section of the step is to use the parameter from Plain to JavaScript.

    Select the text you want to parameterize and right click it.  From the menu, you can create a new parameter or select from an existing one. Read Entire Entry

    Recording in TruClient

    First add a new script using the TruClient – Web protocol.  To record a script, you’ll need to select what browser you want to use.  On the toolbar, you’ll see a drop down next to the Develop Script button.  Select which browser you would like to use.  I suggest doing most of the scripting with Firefox since it seems to be the most mature of the TruClie Read Entire Entry

    First, please don’t confuse TruClient with the Ajax – Click and Script protocol.  These are two totally different protocols based on completely different technology.  Click and Script was an early attempt at making a script that didn’t need traditional correlation.  It never was highly adopted and I don’t think it was well understood.  In version 11 of LoadRunner that all changed.  H Read Entire Entry

    Working with Tables
    Sometimes working with VTS tables isn’t very straight forward.  VTS provides you with a single table for data sharing. Don’t think of it as a database table, think of it more of an Excel table.  There is NO forced row integrity – keeping related data on the same row – thu Read Entire Entry

  • What is LoadRunner’s DFE Part 1 (XML)

    Posted on August 1, 2016 by Admin

    DFE is short for Data Format Extension.  It is a feature added to LoadRunner back in version 11, but a lot of people don’t understand what it is and how it can help you.  In simple terms DFE allows for easier LoadRunner scripting by allowing us to decode and encode normally unreadable or formatted data that the may be sent between the client and the server.  A simple example would be converting a long XML request into a more readable format.  Another example would be converting an unreadable Base 64 request into something that Read Entire Entry
