Loadrunner: Protocol to be used for standalone application

Hi All,

I have a 2 tier application ,

tier 1 

a thick client which is installed on the client machine ( the software is a financial application , written in powerbuilder)   

 

tier 2 

oracle database 

 

The communication between tier 1 and tier 2is happening using odbc. 

 

Question:

1. Can someone please guide me as to whether we need to select win32 application ( rather than the standard web url) while recording the applicaion .

2. Please also confirm if i need to use ODBC protocol ( as the recording protocol)  after step 1

3. Any other pointers /suggestions that we need to take into consideration while recording a standalone application

Hi,

 

I would suggest you to prefer GUI based protocols(Citrix,GUI Vuser , RDP,etc.,) for Power Builder Application.

You can also give a try with Winsock protocol.
