Today we will share with you what is VTS and how you can take advantage in this important feature.
For those who have never use VTS before, Virtual Table Server (VTS) is a tool that shares data and parameters between LoadRunner vusers.

Last week at the StarEast Testing Conference in Orlando, FL we made some pretty big announcements. We released new versions of our flagship quality and testing software products. We are calling the whole initiative “The new style of IT”.
This new way of thinking about IT is impacting LoadRunner as well. Keep reading to find out the highlights of LoadRunner 11.52 and why I am as excited about the launch as a kid getting a new toy.
LoadRunner scripts that use the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) don’t always replay smoothly. My colleague Kert (Yang Luo) from the LoadRunner R&D team has collected some tips that will save you time and effort, and help you ensure that your RDP scripts run correctly. Continue reading to learn more.
Not doing mobile performance testing? Don’t worry, you will…
Everyone seems to be asking about performance testing in relation to the new reality of mobile access to almost every publicly available application, so I’m picking up the gauntlet and answering the tough questions. Continue reading to find out what people mean when they talk about mobile performance testing, and some best practices.
Last week I attended a class about Mobile application testing and learned a great deal about what needs to be tested and how, specifically from a mobile application point of view. In a matter of minutes, we were able to find all sorts of bugs in the applications. Overall, it was a real fun and empowering experience.
Is testing mobile applications the same as testing web applications? It seems like it is, but it is so NOT!
Today HP is launching a time limited, bundle incentivized, mobile performance testing promotion to help you get started with this most important initiative.
Read the blog to learn more about mobile application testing and the discounted HP Performance Validation Suite.
Did you know that once you’ve written a functional test using HP Unified Functional Testing, you can then use that test script as part of a load-testing scenario using HP LoadRunner? Continue reading to find out how.
I know good training is often expensive and difficult to schedule. It’s often incredibly hard to find either the time or the money to go to training. You’re going to HP Discover, so why not get some quality training while you’re there!
At this year’s HP Discover in Las Vegas, we’re going to have a great half day mobile performance testing training focused on using HP LoadRunner and Shunra Network Virtualization.
I know you’ve been thinking about how to solve mobile performance issues, so here’s your chance to take control and learn how to solve the problem once and for all. In this session, you will have a chance to learn from a top notch performance engineer, who will walk you through how to solve for the mobile challenges.
Tuesday, June 11 at HP Discover in Las Vegas, you can attend a half day training session titled “Mobile Performance Testing”. The session will be hands on and will give you a chance to learn about how HP Loadrunner and Shunra, give you complete control over your mobile performance testing obstacles.
The cost per training course is only $99.. This is a $400 savings off the normal fee. This Vivit Advanced Training course can be added to your new or existing HP Discover conference registration account.
Questions? Unable to attend HP Discover but would like to attend Vivit Advanced Training? Contact Laura Walker, Education Chair, Vivit Board of Directors.
Of course, if you happen to be interested in mobile app development, then you should check out the apps for mobile dev blog and HP Anywhere, If you are a developer, then do check out the HP Anywhere developer community – the Developer Zone and download our IDE and start building your mobile apps now!
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.
