Loadrunner and Java Swing Application

[ Edited ]

Can LR automate Java Swing applications? We will be automating a Java Swing app and then performing loadtesting via Citrix.

Yes, I have some colleagues that are using LoadRunner to do performance testing on Swing apps.

Re: Loadrunner and Java Swing Application

Do you know what version they are using and whether they have any patches or other modifications they may have installed?
Hopefully this will work. I have yet to find a good tool that automates Swing and allows for citrix loadtesting.

Re: Loadrunner and Java Swing Application

Why are you going to test it via ui?
E.g. if it's a multitier application, can't it be automated at the level of communication protocol between client and app.server or app.server and DB?

Re: Loadrunner and Java Swing Application

I have not thought of that.
How do you go about testing that portion?

We do need to be able to provide Scalabitlity results on the Citrix layer. I think that will require the full testing of the UI.

Re: Loadrunner and Java Swing Application

James,
Is there any chance I could talk to your colleague about LR & Java Swing automation & performance testing?
