I have a question about Loadrunner Vugen 11.52 recording of SIM and RPM on Oracle IBMS 13.2.4. These require a custom configuration for Java JNLP recording.

This is complete with the exception of the invoking of the recording. HP is suggesting a “batch file” invocation. Another option is a Wireshark/Web Service traffic analyze process to develop a Vugen script. I am hoping to avoid the wireshark option.

Our DBA is telling me that the batch invocation can not be done. I do not have access to the source code.

There is a process to create a batch file. I believe I have it complete with the exception of item #3. Please see below. I think this may be being done via StartWebLogic.sh. using single-signon software.

1. Understand the execution of the batch file. [Do not modify]
2. Review if there is any PATH or CLASSPATH modifications / aggregations
3. Search for the line that launches the application
e.g. javaw -parameter1 -parameter2
4. If there is PATH or CLASSPATH modifications add them to the Environment Variable
4.1. System Property > Advanced > Environment Variables
4.2. Select and edit the PATH or CLASSPATH base on the Step 2 by adding the information do not delete the existing data.
5. Launch the VuGen Recording
5.1. Change recording options to match the Step 3
6. Start the recording.

Any help you can render would be appreciated. I noticed you refer to the java over http protocol in your writings. I am using java record replay at the moment.

    Sorry for my late response – I somehow missed this. Has this issue been resolved? I hope so since you have stumped me – anyone else have any suggestions?

Hi Joe,

Any idea if a Load Generator agent can run on the same machine with BPM?

    Joe Colantonio - July 23, 2013

    Based on in my past experience having LR and BPM causes issues. I think there iare conflicts with certain dlls when LR and BPM are on the same machine. You may want to dbl check with HP but their KB does say that having LR and BPM on the same machine is not recommended.
