To start this course, you will need to download HP LoadRunner. The first section deals with downloading and running the application so you can be assured that you are installing the correct program. You will be shown how to extract the zip file and install all the packages that are required for this application. In addition to this, you will be introduced to the web tours sample application and its uses, which is also a product of HP. This topic will also help you learn how this application works and how LoadRunner is used as a solution for performance testing. The course then describes what VuGen is and why we need this to run alongside HP LoadRunner. You will learn how to create your first script and how to record the sample application by using VuGen. This course will help you learn how to set up HTML based and URL based recording options in LoadRunner. You will also learn how to set up the recording settings for scripts in HP LoadRunner.

Then, we will look at transactions that are used to measure the time between two or more steps in recording and execution of scripts. You will study the multiple ways of transaction usage in scripts. Along with this, you will be introduced to the concept of parameterization and how we use this in HP LoadRunner. You will study the different steps involved in parameterization and its benefits. The course then describes the differences between the controller and VuGen. In addition to this, this course will help you learn about the functions of the controller in HP LoadRunner. We will discuss how to set up run time settings and rendezvous points in detail. The course then moves to the study of analysis tools, the third component available in LoadRunner. You will also learn about the concept of correlation, how we can use correlation and the different types of correlation available in HP LoadRunner.

The last module in the course dives into the exciting world of ordinal values and how these can be used alongside correlation. You will also understand the correlation between dynamic and ordinal values in this course. You will be introduced to integer and char values in LoadRunner. We will discuss how to use string variables in C and LR practically. In addition to this, we will discuss the table, date and time type in parameterization. You will take a closer look at where and why we use date and time parameters in LoadRunner. We will discuss the parameterization setting, its role in LoadRunner and different types of parameterization settings and their features. This course is ideal for those who are working as software developers and want to perform load testing for their applications or for the students studying in application and software development.
