HP Loadrunner and Java Application hosted on a Linux Server

Jump to solution
Hi All,

We have got a new client request for doing performance testing for a Web Based Java Application(using JBoss) hosted in a Linux Server,however, the Load Testing would be done from a Windows platform as always.
Will LR support this? Are there any differences in the way LR would recognise the controls or the the way it behaves?

Thanks and Regards,
Sukanya

It should not matter what platform hosts a Web based application. If it runs in a browser and you can record with the Web protocol it should work fine. I have tested Java apps hosted on Windows servers, AIX servers, Solaris servers, and Linux servers and all of them were pretty much the same.

Hi Alan,

Are there any latency factors involved when we do the performance testing from a windows platform with the application being in a Linux Server?

Thanks

Why would there be any latency problems. Are your load generators on the same subnet as the applications servers? If so, it should be the same regardless of what platform is used to host an application.

Just think of the load generators executing your web transactions just like they are executed when you use the browser manually. The only difference is that the scripts communicate with the application under test at layer 4 of the OSI model. This eliminates the browser.

Oh ok. Thanks Alan. That was a very neat and a simple explanation.
