Recording Interactive PDF (Adobe LiveCycle) with LoadRunner/VUGen

Hi All,

I have been attempting to record the client-server interaction of an Adobe Interactive PDF when the user submits a form to the server.

Based on my research this communication supposedly occurs over HTTP/HTTPS. However, when I attempt to record, LoadRunner does not seem to "pick up" anything. The recording always comes back completely empty. FWIW, when I click submit on the PDF form, Adobe Reader spawns an instance of IE (presumably how the HTTP request is sent). I am not sure if spawning a separate application is why it is not recording. If so, I'm not sure how to capture the new window with VUGen since it occurs only after the test case has already begun.

I have tried several different protocols including HTTP/HTTPS, Web Service and Flex with no dice. I also tried all of the protocols suggested by the Protocol Advisor.

I am using LoadRunner 9.5.

Please advise.

Have you tried adding server entries in port mapping recording option for HTTP protocol. I would also suggest you to just give a try for wininet recording options.

Hi,

Try Recording using HTTP/HTTPS protocol with Capture level as WinINet level data.

This option is found in Recording option -- > port mapping --> Capture level.
