Integrate SeeTestAutomation and HP LoadRunner

When installing or updating SeeTestAutomation on a machine with HP Virtual User Generator, few sub-folders of HP Virtual User Generator are being updated.

To make sure the integration was done successfully, check that the following files were added to the <LoadRunner_Installation_directory>/bin:

  • CookComputing.XmlRpcV2.dll
  • imageClient.dll

If they have not, you should manually copy them from <SeeTestAutomation_installation_directory>/clients/vugen/

Exporting code for VUGen

To export a code to HP Virtual User Generator (VUGen), you need:

  1. Obtain the test code in VUGen language;
  2. Integrate SeeTestAutomation and HP Virtual User Generator.

The following is a step-by-step description of how to do it.

Step 1: In SeeTestAutomation, create your script and go to the "Code" tab.

Step 2: From the code tab, select VUGen language from the drop down list.

Step 3: Code in VUGen language will be generated for the script. You can copy it into clipboard using button  :

Step 4: Now you can paste the copied code into a C-Vuser project in HP Virtual User Generator as displayed in the following screenshot.

The next section describes how to create such a project.


Creating a C-Vuser project

In the previous section you created and copied C-code for a VUGen client. This section describes how to create an HP Virtual User-Generator project which can run that code.

Step 1: Open HP Virtual User-Generator.

Step 2: File -> New Script and Solution (or merely press Ctrl+N buttons).

Step 3: Under category ‘VuGen’ select subcategory ‘Single Protocol’ and choose protocol ‘C Vuser’:

Step 4: Give a name to your project and click on ‘Create’. In this example, we named our project ‘CVuser4’.

Step 5: Open action ‘Action.c’ (by double-clicking on item ‘Action’ in the solution explorer of the created project):

Step 6: Erase the content of file Action.c and paste there the code you copied in the previous section:

Step 7: Make sure that the code is compilable using button  :

If the compilation fails because the header file ic_api.h or some identifier starting with prefix ic_ could not be found, then you need to include file ic_api.h as an extra file of your project. For that purpose, you can click RMB above in the solution explorer and select the pop-up option "Add Files to Script...". The location of file ic_api.h is <SeeTestAutomation_installation_directory>/clients/vugen/ic_api.h .

Step 8: Now you can connect all the necessary devices / launch the necessary emulators, and run your test from HP Virtual User-Generator. Button   starts the test:

When the test stops running, you can see its status:

If the test has failed, a corresponding message will be displayed in the output:

That has happened because the test contains a callback function which is activated upon a failure in a step. This page will elaborate on the callback.
