Using QuickTest or Unified Functional Testing Tests in LoadRunner - Overview

HP Functional Testing software (QuickTest or Unified Functional Testing) enables you to create complex tests that examine the full spectrum of your application's functionality.

LoadRunner can integrate QuickTest or Unified Functional Testing tests into a load testing scenario in the form of GUI Vuser scripts. These tests, that have already been designed and debugged in QuickTest or Unified Functional Testing can be used as the basis of your load test.

The main uses of running QuickTest or Unified Functional Testing tests in LoadRunner are:

  • To check how your application's functionality is affected by heavy load

  • To measure the response time that a typical user experiences on the client side while your application is under load (end-to-end response time)

For example, you can add QuickTest or Unified Functional Testing tests to specific points in a LoadRunner scenario to confirm that the application's functionality is not affected by the extra load at those sensitive points.

Another advantage of using a GUI Vuser script as part of your LoadRunner scenario is that the GUI Vuser script runs on your screen during the scenario, enabling you to watch the actual steps executed by the Vuser in real time.
