Database protocols overview

VuGen creates database Vuser scripts by recording all the activity between a client and a database server.

Suppose that you have a database of customer information that is accessed by customer service personnel located throughout the country. You use database Vusers to emulate the database server servicing many requests for information.

A database Vuser can:

  • Connect to the server
  • Submit an SQL query
  • Retrieve and process the information
  • Disconnect from the server

Supported protocols

The following database protocols are supported:

  • Oracle Two-Tier
  • ODBC

The resulting script contains LRD functions that describe the database activity.
