Which protocol is suitable for Power Builder v 12.5 Application?


Any one have idea on the protocol to be used for power builder application. The Communication is through TCP/IP protocol. It is a standalone desktop application. It has one database server and no application server.


I am able to record with Winsock protocol. But there is a difference showing  with 2 different user recording in Winsock protocol. And it is in unreadabe format. Also if i run a single user iteration in vugen, it's not updating in the database.


I tried with Com/Dcom, Web Http/Html and Oracle 2 Tier where no events got generated.


Working protocols:

1)Able to record and replay with RDP protocol. But kept as an option for its license cost.

2)Citrix and GUI Vuser protocol might work for these type of applicaiton.


Please let me kknow whether there is any web protocol which will support for this type of application.
