Script development with TruClient is fast, but more Vusers can be run with VuGen Web - HTTP/HTML than with TruClient. You can combine the advantage of fast script development, and the advantage of running many Vusers, by developing your script with TruClient and then converting it to a Web - HTTP/HTML script.
Note: During the conversion, comments and APIs are added to the Web - HTTP/HTML protocol script that document the conversion process.
- Create a TruClient script. See Record a TruClient Web script in the TruClient Help Center (select the relevant version).
- Save the script and close the TruClient Side Bar.
From the VuGen toolbar, click the button to convert the script.
- After the script is generated, review the script, keeping in mind that the Web - HTTP/HTML protocol records on the transport level. For example, you may need to address correlation or parameter issues in your converted script.
When you add a converted script to a scenario, VuGen offers to create a new Vuser group for the script, provided that the original TruClient script is in the specified path. Having a separate group enables you to view its results separately.
Conversion of TruClient scripts to Web - HTTP/HTML scripts does not support converting steps that call 127.0.0.1 (localhost).
