Loadrunner scripts in SVN?

Hi all,

Has anyone had good/bad experiences with having the loadrunner scripts (TruClient, HTTP, OracleNCA) syncing in the background to a SVN server?

We did have it setup but seemingly had alot of issues, which I am trying to quantify to address.

Is there a concern with the amount of data being written, or the tmp, idx, etc., files changing so much?

Any workaround that might help, such as scheduling a SVN commit after hours, or only version version folders/files. e.g. Are there files we don't need to version control


Thanks.

Re: Loadrunner scripts in SVN?

Hi Brian_Folan,

LoadRunner does not officially support SVN, but managing scripts in a repository is as simple as any other code.

You can  look online for examples of using source-control system for this.

As for temporary files, you can add them to the system's ignore-list.

One example of this can be found here (it is for Git, but could be adapted for SVN):

Re: Loadrunner scripts in SVN?

Thanks e-Dough - I've only used SVN a few times myself, but seen it used alot with full developers. I'm looking for any experiences specifically with the Loadrunner files as the NFT testers I have joined here did have a lot of script corruption and put it down to SVN usage.
