Record Android client application test scripts in IBM Rational Performance Tester
With the growth of smart phone use, more web-based applications are offering access from a mobile client, whether it is a browser or a native application. In both cases, these clients are likely to use HTTP as the networking protocol, which, in theory, makes them testable using the main load-testing tools. But most of the products currently available don't have built-in functionality to record a test for a mobile client application. Valerio Pengue explains how to use the Android emulator to set up a simple framework to record an HTTP test for an Android application in IBM Rational Performance Tester. This article is for intermediate to advanced Rational Performance Tester users.
