Testing asynchronous business processes with LoadRunner

In the early days of the World Wide Web, web applications communicated using conversations that had a synchronous nature: the user interacts with an application that is presented in a web browser, the browser submits a request to the web server, the server sends a response, and the application in the browser is updated.

 

However, synchronous applications have a number of limitations. One limitation involves the inability of the client to reflect events occurring at the server. This could be critical if, for example, the application in question displays stock prices or sport results and must present the updated info at all times. The answer to these limitations is asynchronous communication, whereby responses from the server arrive periodically or as a reaction to server-side events.

 

Many of today’s applications combine synchronous (user-initiated) and asynchronous (application-initiated) modes of communication between the client and the server. Usually the two occur in parallel (e.g. a user is navigating within the bank’s site, while at the same time stock updates keep pouring in), which makes it hard to accurately emulate such applications using traditional Vuser scripts.
