Which version of Load Runner and which protocol, supports HTML 5.0 Content on Google Chrome?

[ Edited ]

We have an application which is supported only on Google Chrome and has HTML 5.0 Content.

So please confirm which version of Load Runner supports HTML 5 Content on Google Chrome. 

Also confirm the protocols which support it.

 

 

Also let us know which version of chrome browser is supported by Load Runner. 

 

 

P.S. this thread has been moved from HP Service Manager / Service Center Support and News Forum to LoadRunner Support Forum - HP Forum Moderator

Hi,

HTML 5 is a general word for a slew of features.
Could you just try recording with Web protocol and see if it works out well for you?

Re: Which version of Load Runner and which protocol, supports HTML 5.0 Content on Google Chrome?

We tried recording using Load Runner v 11, patch 4 and Web HTTP/HTML protocol. We are also using the updated bbhook.dll. 

The chrome browser version used is 26.0.

 

We are able to record the application now, but the recording and replay snapshots are not getting captured properly. 

 

The script is getting recorded with web_custom_request (instead of web_url, web_Submit_Data etc). 

In run time viewer the backend responses are displayed instead of GUI screens, so it's very tedious to analyze and debug. 

 

So please help.

Hi,

 

We generate web_custom_request for all the features we don't currently support.

 

So I guess the answer to your initial question is that we currently don't support this content in any version of LoadRunner.

We are planning HTML support for our future release, it could be helpful for us if you send us this script so that we make sure that future version of LoadRunner generate better code for it.

 

If you are willing to send the script please send it to: vugen.feedback@hp.com

 

Thanks,

Boris.

You mention that the Run-Time Viewer is only displaying the backend responses. The Run-Time Viewer is not a full web browser. It only displays the content returned for the current request being executed in your script. If the only thing being returned is an XML string then that it all that will be displayed in the viewer. Don't confuse it with a full web browser showing the whole web page, that isn't its purpose.

 

You may have better luck by using the Tree view and displaying the playback view for each page rather than the recorded view, or both at the same time for comparison.

Thanks for confirming Boris. Unfortunately we have take the necessary approvals before we share the script.

We tried checking the tree view (Recording and replay) as well, but it's showing the same results displayed in Run time viewer.

Hi Anoop,

 

Have you already updated your bbhook.dll? We were first advised to do that by HP Support team when we raised a ticket for it. 

Please refer this link: http://osdir.com/ml/LR-LoadRunner/2011-12/msg00313.html or create a ticket with HP Support to get the latest dll. 

 

Please note: We were told that even if we update this dll file, some of the HTML 5.0 features which are not supported currently, will be recorded as web_custom_request.

 

Also, try recording using Ajax truclient or Ajax Click and Script protocols also and let the forum know.

 

Thanks,

MKM

"In run time viewer the backend responses are displayed instead of GUI screens, so it's very tedious to analyze and debug. "

 

You shouldn't be too concerned with what the run time viewer shows because it has limitations. You should be using the data returned from the server in the replay log to verify success using text/content checks in your script. The data returned from the server is not always displayed correctly in the run time viewer.

Thanks ... We are using the data returned by server in replay log for analysis and generator logs for manual correlation.

The value (" js?_=1368224208198") which you were referring is a timeestamp. we can generate in loadrunner using web_save_timestamp_param() function. That is the reason you were unable to find the same in the server response.

For Time Stamp there are couple of other functions and in built parameters.

 

This function web_save_timestamp_param("tmstampParam2", LAST); gives timestamp in the format YYYYMMDDHHMMSS

Whereas lr_save_datetime or the inbuilt Parameter in Load Runner (Date/time) allows us to specify the Time stamp in the format we need.

So shouldn't we use one of these instead of web_save_timestamp_param?

 

For instance:

lr_save_datetime("%d/%m/%y %H:%M:%S", DATE_NOW, "tmstampParam1");  

Format would print time as 16/05/2013 15:45:22

No it doesn't.

 

What it gives is the number of milliseconds since midnight January 1st, 1970.  AKA Epoch unix timestamp. Which is actually just what you need.

 

This code:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

web_save_timestamp_param("tmstampParam2"LAST);

lr_output_message(lr_eval_string("{tmstampParam2}"));

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Gives the following timestamp: 1368714387919

 

Which is in the perfect format for what you need (13 digit timestamp)

I don't understand why you think that is the right format.

 

I don't see "js?_= 16/05/2013 15:45:22"

 

 I see js?_=1368224208198"

 

 

 

So from my point of view it's pretty clear to me that web_save_timestamp_param is perfect for what you need.
