Mon, 04/13/2015 - 21:50

(This post was written by Huan Feng (Ramsey), from the StormRunner Load R&D team)

StormRunner Load "How2" Guide Vol. 8: JavaScript

Mon, 04/13/2015 - 20:20

Often developers will want to run some preliminary load tests before the full GUI has been developed. They may also want to programmatically test certain code or sections of a web server. In these cases, using HP TruClient may not be feasible.


Fortunately, HP has TruAPI which is a programmatic way to write scripts against a web server’s functionality.


HP TruAPI embeds additional functionality into a well-known library called node.js. Node.js® is an open source, cross-platform runtime environment for server-side and networking applications. Node.js® is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js® uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
