LoadRunner Web Protocol with insertion of Java Code


I have come across the challenge in adding Java Code to generate client side dynamic value to the Web Protocol script. I know any java script can be added by using "Add File to each script" option and also we can use Javascript language as well.

But, i'm not sure whether the Java Code snippet can be exactly used in Web Protocol. I have seen this options in RPT Tool and even JMeter as well.

To Add Java Code, is it like converting Web Protocol script to Java Vuser script is the only way in LoadRunner? If so, license constrains always exist because of this one option, we might need to purchace the License bundle.


Please do suggest if there is any option available apart from the above mentioend options.

Re: LoadRunner Web Protocol with insertion of Java Code


To my best of knowledge, LoadRunner is executing C as a script (interpreted) and not pre-compiled.
Javascript is not compiled natively, thus can be executed and modified as you wish.
For Java, scripts must be compiled and then executed using a JVM.

LoadRunner is not using a JVM for protocols that do not require JVM for performance optimizations.

If you must use Java to code to create the dynamic value, you are limited to Java protocols.
If you can use C or JavaScript that might be an option.
