Recording mobile device traffic for performance testing iPhone, iOS, Android and Windows Mobile applications with HP Loadrunner

Mobile Testing

Want to write a performance test that will replicate the traffic of an actual hardware device such as an iPad, iPhone or Android device? This article covers a useful technique to capture and replay the network traffic of real mobile devices. In my previous blog the Android SDK’s emulator has been used to run the mobile client […]

Recording and Performance testing Android applications with HP Loadrunner VuGen

In this article I will show how to create a Loadrunner test to replicate the network traffic generated by an Android application. The Android SDK will be used to execute the application under test, while HP Loadrunner Virtual User Generator (VuGen) captures the network packets and translates it to Loadrunner virtual user script. Prerequisites: Loadrunner/Performance […]
