Ajax - Click and Script Protocol

Caution: Support for the Ajax Click & Script protocol will be discontinued in upcoming versions of LoadRunner and Performance Center.

  • Do not use the Ajax Click & Script protocol for new scripts.

  • We recommend that you migrate your existing Ajax Click & Script scripts to another Web protocol such as TruClient - Web or Web - HTTP/HTML.

    For details on these Web protocols, see Web - HTTP/HTML Protocol or go to the TruClient Help Center (select the relevant version).

Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) represents a group of technologies for creating interactive Web applications. With Ajax, web pages exchange small packets of data with the server, instead of reloading an entire page. This reduces the amount of time that a user needs to wait when requesting data. It also increases the interactive capabilities and enhances the usability.

Using Ajax, developers can create fast Web pages using Javascript and asynchronous server requests. The requests can originate from user actions, timer events, or other predefined triggers.

Ajax components, also known as Ajax controls, are GUI based controls that use the Ajax technique—they send a request to the server when a trigger occurs.

For example, a popular Ajax control is a Reorder List control that lets you drag components to a desired position in a list. VuGen's support for Ajax implementation is based on Microsoft's ASP.NET Ajax Control Toolkit formerly known as Atlas.
