Description
HTML-based script
This is the default recording level for Web - HTTP/HTML Vusers. It instructs VuGen to record HTML actions in the context of the current Web page. It does not record all resources during the recording session, but downloads them during replay. This options is recommended for browser applications with applets and VB script.
URL-based script
Record all requests and resources from the server. It automatically records every HTTP resource as URL steps (web_url statements), or in the case of forms, as web_submit_data. It does not generate the web_link, web_image, and web_submit_form functions, nor does it record frames. We recommend this option for non-browser applications.
