Modern applications being built using latest technologies and framework. It is vital to test the non-functional aspects of the application in different browsers, tablets, mobiles, and desktops. There is a necessity that performance testing tool must support major browsers, tablets, mobiles, and desktops. In HPE LoadRunner 12.50, a new protocol called TruClient – Web has been added which fulfills your testing needs in major browsers.
Download latest version HPE LoadRunner. Click on Add New Script and select TruClient – Web and then click on Create button.
