With the rise of Ajax powered sites, it is becoming very important for the websites to load the data quickly, asynchronously and without any delay.
For AJAX applications, JSON is faster and easier than XML.
Difference between JSON and XML
Does RPT support JSON inputs?
Yes. JSON inputs are supported since the version RPT 8.2.1.
How to pass JSON inputs into RPT?
JSON inputs can be passed into RPT using the below two methods -
I. Proxy recording
The procedure is the same as recording a http test.
The use case would be:
1. [RPT Recording Wizard] Start a 'New test from Recording'
2. [RPT Recording Wizard] Select the option 'http test'
3. [RPT Recording Wizard] Record an "unmanaged application"
4. [RPT Recording Wizard] Selection of an available port on the machine, and then start of the recording.
5. [SoapUI client ] Launch SOAP UI > File > Preferences > Proxy settings
6. [SoapUI client ] Populate the 'Host' flied with the value 127.0.0.1. The Port number should be the one that you selected during recording (as in Step 4)
7. [SoapUI client] Manual tests until the end of a given scenario.
8. [Rpt Recording Wizard] Stop the recording.
Once the recording is stopped, a SOA extension test should be created in RPT with all the JSON information.
II. Manual test suite creation
1. Launch RPT
2. File > New Web service Test > Empty Test
3. Once an Empty test is created, you can add 'Text requests'
4. The URL should have the JSON information.
5. Add a 'http header'
Name - 'Content-Type'
Value - 'application/json'
6. Lastly, paste the JSON Content to be sent in the test suite -

Web UI Theming feature gives a Jazz Team Server administrator the ability to modify the look and feel of the Web UI for all users of that Jazz Team Server.
A theme can contain any number of *.css files. The *.css files in the theme can create new CSS rules, or they can override existing rules. If a CSS rule defined in an active theme exactly matches a CSS rule defined by the Jazz Team Server, the CSS rule defined by the theme will take precedence.
Tip: If you would like to alter the appearance of a certain UI element, use a tool like Firebug to inspect the DOM node and see what CSS rules are affecting its appearance. You can then create a theme that overrides those rules in order to alter the element's appearance.
I am listing examples where a logo can be modified either using a 'publicly accessible' image or an image file on a local machine.
Using a 'publicly accessible ' image. You can replace the hyperlink with your custom logo and modify the dimensions in css as per your requirement.
Similarly, upload the step 3 zip file for ccm and qm applications.

Attempts to log-in to the Secured web application while recording in IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT) may led to the message - 'This Connection is Untrusted'.
The message is seen because, RPT acts as a proxy between the browser and the server application to record the data exchange. When a Secured page is recorded using RPT, the RPT proxy certificate is presented to the browser leading to the above message.
Creating and installing a digital certificate will help you get rid of the above message during RPT recording.
The digital certificates feature enables you to run tests against servers that use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for applications that require client-side digital certificates to authenticate users.
A digital certificate is a file that binds a public cryptographic key with an identity (a user or an organization). Trusted certificate authorities issue digital certificates, which are then used to authenticate users and organizations for access to websites, email servers, and other secure systems. A certificate store is an archive file that contains almost any number of digital certificates, possibly certificates that are issued from different certificate authorities.
Creating a Digital certificate store
A digital certificate store can be created using the 'keytool' utility.
You will find the keytool utility file in the RPT_
Navigate to the below directory through the command prompt -
Type the following command and press enter
my_certificate is an alias for your certificate in the key store. You may never use it, but every new certificate in your key store must have its own alias.
The certificate generation process will prompt you to enter some information about you. This information will be saved in the certificate. At the end you will have to confirm the entered information.
Once the information is confirmed, you will be prompted to enter the password. Enter the password given in the above command -
At the end you will find the new key store file my_keystore.pfx in your current directory.
Importing a Digital certificate into RPT
Import the certificate into the RPT project before recording.
Click on 'File' > 'Import' > 'General' > 'File system'. Import the required certificates into the project in RPT.
Imported certificates can now be used during RPT recording and playback -
Once you have the certificates in place, you may start recording a test with digital certificates. The below IBM info center link has details on recording a test with digital certificates:
