I want to use loadrunner for my project for testing web-based application. I need few information.Can anyone help me out: 1.What could be the Test Datas that I should be needing for testing an application for an e-commerce website 2what are the basic criterias that I have to focus on for testing initially? 3.Is there any server setup that is needed in order to use Loadrunner for my e-commerce website
The last time I checked, LoadRunner comes in a box with a massive printed manual. Have you tried checking out what the official documentation says about the technical requirements for testing web applications? In general, I'd say you shouldn't need to do anything to your web application in order to be able to load test it with LoadRunner (or any other web testing tool).
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought you're going to use loadrunner to stress test your application? It's a pretty much simple to use software, just that you need to be able to know how to interprete your test results, which I find that it's more important.
What I would do is to create scenario that maps to my acceptance test cases & run these tests for normal expected number of users as well as peak expected number of users. Then I'd be able to tell how my application performs under such conditions, and decide if further tweaking in the codes or resource setup are needed.
