This article series focuses on creating modular performance tests by using the IBM® Rational® Performance Tester split test functionality and then dynamically exchanging data between tests by using the test variable functionality. It explains how to do these tasks: derive test modules from existing tests while keeping the original tests intact, split and annotate test in real time during recording by using the Rational Performance Tester Annotation toolbar, link test modules together by using the test variable functionality, and construct user scenarios by using various test modules and modeling a workload. The tutorial (Part 2) linked with this article gives step-by-step instructions that show how to use a test variable to share data across tests.
