How to start recording script from command line?

I would like to start recording my script from command line without having to click any buttons in VuGen. Is there any way I could accomplish that?

Hi Hubert19, 

in my opinion, dependes on the application you have to test. If your program is based on mainframe/host infrastructure, you can use RTE Protocol on LoadRunner. Do you know this possibility?

Re: How to start recording script from command line?

Thanks for the answer.

I want to record interaction of the browser with my web application using simple Web - HTTP/HTML protocol so, from what I know, RTE won't be applicable in this case.  Ideally, I would start LoadRunner's recording (via LR's proxy) from command line and all the interaction with my web app going through the proxy would be recorded in the script. At the end, some other simple command would stop recording.

It doesn't really have to be from command line - it might as well be e.g. some function invoked from Java code that starts recording. My main goal is to automate the process of starting/stopping recording as I would like to do that many times in a row which is cumbersome when done manually.

Do you have any idea if that is even possible?
