Times, timing and timeouts in TruClient

7.pngTruClient is asynchronous by design. This is due to the asynchronous nature of the modern web applications that TruClient is intended to test, and the technology that is used to implement them.

 

Understanding this important concept is crucial to get the most out of the technology. It also implies that no matter the test structure, or whether the test itself is designed to pause or halt, there may still be some JavaScript or network activity taking place behind the scenes.

 

TruClient has several concepts related to time, timing and timeouts. Continue reading to learn about these concepts, how to configure them and how they may affect the results of your tests.
