Can I loadtest an Power Builder application with a back end database that uses the Native PowerBuilder Drivers.

Can I loadtest an Power Builder application with a back end database that uses the Native PowerBuilder Drivers.

SilkPerformer supports both ODBC and OCI. Therefore, support for Power Builder will be dependent on the database drivers that are used. If the application uses either ODBC or OCI libraries then SilkPerformer will be able to record and replay against the application.

Even if your application uses the native Power Builder drivers it may be using ODBC or OCI. To identify what libraries are used you can use a tool called Process Explorer.

Process Explorer is a freeware tool that can be downloaded at www.sysinternals.com

  1. Start your application
  2. Start "Process Explorer"
  3. Select View | View DLL"s, this will list all the dll’s loaded with the application

If your application uses either the ODBC (e.g. odbc.dll) or OCI libraries (e.g. oci.dll) then you should be able to hook and record your application.
