Is there any disadvantages for upgrading from loadrunner 9.0 to 9.5? will the scripts created in 9.0, work in 9.5? Have you had any problems with the new version?

Hi Qurmit,

Script created in LR Vugen v9.0 should be working in LR Vugen v9.5. Till now I didn't find any problem with new LR version 9.5.

LR v9.5 has come up with new enhancements and new features in some of the area to widen its compatibility.

What's New?

The Protocol Advisor analyzes your business processes and provides guidance for selecting a protocol to record your script.
Enhancements to Existing Protocols

1.Citrix: Added support for Citrix Presentation Server 4.5. The agent can now run on a 64-bit operating system.

2.Oracle (2-Tier): Enhanced support for UTF16 and UTF8 encoding. Added support for Oracle 11g.

3.Oracle NCA: Added support for Oracle NCA configurator and Oracle R12.

4.Flex: Added support for Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), BlazeDS, and LifeCycle Data Services environments. Enhanced ability to parse externalizable objects.

5.RDP: RDP now supports the Agent for Microsoft Terminal Server. Enhanced synchronization reacts to minor changes in UI.

New Features in Recent Versions

1.Provides a Business Process Report (Microsoft Word format) that summarizes the VuGen script.

2.The User-Defined Template enables you to save a script with a specific configuration as a template.

3.Parameter simulator for File type parameters simulates the parameter substitution in an actual scenario.

4.The script editor contains many enhancements, including Find in Files, and support for a custom comparison tool. Supports an XML viewer for .NET & Java protocols.


Thanks
Ajay

Citrix script won't run properly due to a bug. There is also a major bug with the Analysis tool when using Quality Center 10.0

LR scripts are forward compatible.

There are some enhancements in scripting engine...you need to consider what protocol you are currently using.

AFAIK...LR 9.0 to LR 9.1 & LR 9.5 upgradation..there are not much major challenges.

Thanks for the responses everyone.



SButler, you said that there is a major bug with the Analysis tool when using Quality Center 10.0. Can you please expand on that? Currently we are not using LR with QC but we are thinking about running LR tests from QC in the future.

Thanks!

Hi,

Can you please explain about those bugs??

Are you aware of the fixes for these issues.??

citrix: There was one issue. (From LR 9.1 to LR 9.5 upgradation)

Title: Recording Citrix with VuGen 9.5 - nothing recorded after ctrx_nfuse_connect()
Document ID: KM631073

I have heard of one issue in LR controller in LR 9.5 with QC 10.0.....but not in analysis.....

for the above issue....there is a fix in LR 9.51

@Gurmit: What protocl do you use and which version of QC you wish to integrate in near future.??......I might be of some help in getting few more details.
