Example: TransactionsTransaction Functions

Syntax

Arguments

ArgumentComments
transactionName The name of the transaction.

The lr.startTransaction function marks the beginning of a transaction. To indicate a transaction to be analyzed, use the lr.startTransaction and lr.endTransaction functions. These functions are inserted immediately before and after the transaction.

Transactions can be nested, but each lr.startTransaction statement must be associated with an lr.endTransaction statement or it will be interpreted as an illegal command.

Note: For information on allowed characters and maximum length for transaction names, see the transaction guidelines in the VuGen Help Center.

Return Values

This function returns -1 if the transaction name is illegal.

Parameterization

function Action(){

   lr.startTransaction("deposit");

   /* Server API call */
   rc = bank_deposit (50);

   /* End transaction with operation result - pass or fail */
   if (rc == 0)
       lr.endTransaction("deposit", lr.PASS);
   else
       lr.endTransaction("deposit", lr.FAIL);

   return 0;
