TruClient protocols

TruClient protocols enable you to test web and mobile applications. The TruClient engine records your actions and creates a script in real time, presented in a graphical, user-friendly interface.

TruClient help: TruClient help is now part of the VuGen Help Center. For earlier versions, refer to the previous help.

Introduction to TruClient

TruClient scripts are developed using the TruClient engine, which has its own unique interface. The TruClient interface consists of two windows: A browser window, and the TruClient Development window. As you perform the actions you want to record in the browser window, the TruClient engine generates corresponding script steps, which appear in real time in the TruClient Development window. The script steps are presented graphically, in plain English (rather than lines of code, as in other protocols).

When you have finished recording, you can modify and enhance the script by editing the elements of a step, dragging and dropping steps to reorder them, and adding standard VuGen functionality such as parameters and transactions. You can also integrate JavaScript code and APIs into the script.
