  • You should not have any problems with your application. 


    We have some analytics in the application to find related parametes. If your application uses some non standard way of working this may not be detected automatically. You can setup corelation by hands. Please review the help. for the reference.

    Dear Dmitry



    The stand alone application is developed in ASP.net so we have session ids and view states passing in the requests but I am not able to capture or see it in the recorded test case,Pls advise on this.



    I can attach the scripts prepared but I don have any attachments field.



    Thanks

  • Helo, 



    I've looked thru your scenario and i cannot see any session related variables except the cookie ASP.NET_SessionId. This will be handled automatically and you should not care about this. Is it this kind of parameters or you've mentioned something else?

    In our application we have some front end validations like Pop ups and alert box, Will it be handled in WebLoadUI or the front end validations will not be able to controlled by webload ui?

    Hi Mani,



    > [...] front end validations like Pop ups and alert box, Will it be handled in WebLoadUI [...] ?



    WebLoadUI is designed to load test web servers (from the end-user point of view), but not the functionality of the tested application on the end-user side.

    This means, that basically, WebLoadUI operates in non-attended mode. I.e. it sends requests to the web server and compares obtained responses with the expected ones.

    Obtained responses are not processed by the web browser and thus no validations, css filtering/formatting, data input, etc. are taking place at the front-end.



    If you need to function-test your application (i.e. check if alert is displayed in response to some user input and whether client script requires some field to be populated with data before submitting request to the server and so on), then you should consider the tool that is oriented on the functional testing of web applications.

    TestComplete (http://smartbear.com/products/qa-tools/automated-testing-tools) is a great example of such a tool and really worth trying.
