In the HP LoadRunner environment, Vuser scripts are used to emulate real-world business processes. This course covers how to enhance Vuser scripts, how to insert transactions into your scripts, and how to use parameters and correlation to provide flexibility and avoid errors. In this course, you will also learn how to use functions in a script. The course also provides coverage of advanced scripting techniques including how to create a packet capture (PCAP) file and how to generate a script manually or by using Microsoft Visual Studio or Eclipse. You will also learn how to run scripts from the Windows command line and how to compile and run scripts in Linux.
