Create Java Vuser scripts in external IDEs
The following topics describe how to develop a Java Vuser script within the JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA or Eclipse environments.
LoadRunner Professional provides add-ins that allow you to develop Java Vuser scripts with supported versions of these environments. For details on supported versions, see the Support Matrix.
- IntelliJ IDEA
These add-ins allow you to create a Vuser script within the IDE environment. You program a standard Vuser script using standard functions or protocol-specific functions from the Function Reference, within your native environment. You can then use the script in your testing environment, for example, in a LoadRunner Professional scenario.
The add-ins are provided in Additional Components folder of your LoadRunner Professional installation package. To install the IntelliJ plugin, see Install the IntelliJ IDEA plugin. (For Eclipse, VuGen automatically installs the add-in the first time you choose Open in Eclipse.)
When working in the IDE environment, the complete VuGen API is available from the Object browser or editor. For information about each of the Vuser functions that you can use when programming your script, see the Function Reference (select the relevant version).
