VB the front end and Oracle the back end

I have a VB application in the front end (client)that interacts with the Oracle in the back end (server). As per the technical architecture team the front end application(client) communicates with the server through ODBC .

Now I wish to know what would be the potential protocol to be used for recording?

What should I enter in the field "Program to record" and "Program Arguments" while starting the recording process?

Help in this regard would be valueable.

You would be using Vb script as this is your front end.

Re: VB the front end and Oracle the back end

Since you have mentioned that the communication protocol is ODBC. You can use the ODBC protocol for recording the application. In the "Program to record" you can choose the .exe file of your application.

Hi Pawana,

Program to record: Specify your application path.

I suggest you try with ODBC protocol.

The details on recording with this protocol can be found in LR help.

Start->All Programs->LR->Documentation->VUGen Ref (Ref Protocols)

If this doesn't help....try to use LR PROTOCOL ADVISOR feature; this will list the suitable protocol(s).

PS: This feature is available in LR 9.5.

If you have loadrunner version 9.5,use PROTOCOL ADVISOR feature to identify the protocol for your application.

If you don't 9.5 version,then proceed with ODBC protocol.
