V3.7 UPDATE 2

Posted by StimTech on May 21, 2014 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

The update released today includes the following enhancements:

1. Test wizard is expanded. Now the test wizard walks users not only through the test configuration and run, but also through the major  test results. Wizard steps are added:  summary report, page details, request details, VU details.



2. Wizard UI highlighting. As a user navigates through the Test Wizard steps, the corresponding areas of the UI are highlighted to indicate how to execute the same steps  outside the wizard. This simplifies StresStimulus adoption.…

STRESSTIMULUS 3.7 - Intro

Posted by StimTech on April 9, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

Jun 06, Update:  v3.7 went live today. In includes substantially expanded context- sensitive help linked with the new v3.7 Online User Guide

StresStimulus V3.7, released today substantially simplifies test case configuration. This result is achieved by two main factors: 

  • Test wizard. No more guessing about what to do next while configuring your test case. The wizard will guide you through all major steps of recording and configuring a test case.
  •  Killer autocorrelation. It finds and correlates hidden dynamic parameters in query string, body, header or restless URL…

StresStimulus 3.7 Part 1 - Test Wizard

Posted by StimTech on April 9, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

  1. Recording a test case is now initiated from the top node on test case tree. The wizard will present a choice of recording sources that includes:

    • all web browsers installed on the test machine (a)
    • a non-browser application (b)
    • a mobile device (c)

Select the recording source and click Record to start capturing your test case.

 

To create a test case from Session Grid, capture sessions or open a previously saved .saz session file, then on the first step in the wizard, select this choice (d) and click Create.

  1. Post recording steps.…

STRESSTIMULUS 3.7 PART 2 - Other Improvements

Posted by StimTech on April 9, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

  1. Killer autocorrelation. In v 3.7, the autocorrelation is completely re-engineered to find the majority of dynamic parameters automatically. It finds and correlates hidden dynamic parameters in the query string, body, header or restless URL in all web application platforms, including binary or XML messages. In simple and medium tests cases the entire parameterization is configured automatically. Up to 80% of time spent configuring complex test cases is saved as well.
  1. Handling parameters and test optimization. You can reduce performance overhead by deleting unnecessary parameters. The autocorrelation process creates extractors and parameters to avoid test execution errors. However, some of these parameters may be unnecessary. The Verify command generates an Extractor Verification Tree where every extractor has one of…

StresStimulus 3.5 Part 1 - More Test Options

Posted by StimTech on December 13, 2013 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

1. Loops. A Loop is a group of sequential requests or pages, requested multiple times within a test case iteration. Loops are implemented as extensions of transactions. Once a transaction is created, it can be converted to a loop by changing its "Transaction or Loop Type" property. Two types of loops are supported:

  • Unconditional Loops are repeated a specified number of times.
  • Conditional Loops have a condition, which is checked at the end of the loop to determine if the loop should continue or exit. You can set up a loop to exit when the condition returns true or false. Two types of conditions are supported.
    • Text Based condition depends on finding in a response a specified text or regular expressions.
    • Extractor Based condition depends on matching an extractor value with a specified text.

Example of using loops: User postbacks "check status" page multiple times until the…

StresStimulus 3.5 Part 2 - Advanced Parameterization

Posted by StimTech on December 13, 2013 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

1. Three controls for simpler request parameterization. Previous concept of Parameterization Grid and Parameterization Editor is reworked to achieve more functionality and consistency and remove several restrictions. Now you can parameterize requests by selecting one of three controls most suitable for a particular situation. Follow these steps:

  1. Select Parameters node in the Workflow Tree.
  2. Select a request on the Test Case Tree.
  3. Select a tab corresponding to one of three request parts.
    • Request Header
    • Request URL and Query
    • Request Body

Note: GET requests do not have Body.

 

  1. Depending on the selected tab and content of the request, StresStimulus will automatically select one of three…

StresStimulus 3.0 Intro: one tool - two flavors

Posted by StimTech on July 5, 2013 at 10:30am 0 Comments

October 11, Update:  v3.0 went live today.

Nine months ago we unveiled the Standalone StresStimulus Roadmap that laid out our intent to give StresStimulus users a choice of a Fiddler-integrated or standalone version in v3.0. Today with the launch of 3.0 public beta, we mark a significant milestone in this development.

Integrated and standalone versions are delivered in a single installer. Both versions have a very similar UIs and the same feature set, so no additional training is required. Both…
