The Web Test Challenge in Visual Studio

If you have used Visual Studio for load testing, you may have experienced playback errors from a recorded scenario. This happens more often when you test a highly dynamic website or a web application with enhanced security. To resolve these issues, Microsoft troubleshooting instructions recommend performing manual correlation, including finding dynamic parameters and creating extractors. Unfortunately, the manual correlation process is difficult, requires experience, and does not always work.

StresStimulus' Solution

StresStimulus has the #1 auto-correlation engine on the market. It substantially reduces test development time and works with all web frameworks including the toughest-to-test applications such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Dynamics NAV. Until recently these benefits were available exclusively to StresStimulus users. Starting with version 4.8, Visual Studio users can also start saving time on developing web tests and extending testing coverage of applications that are difficult or virtually impossible to test.

How It Works

First, record your test scenario in StresStimulus. It will correlate your dynamic parameters automatically, reducing the amount of manual correlation required in Visual Studio by an order of magnitude. Then export the web test to a file and import it to Visual Studio where you can continue testing in a familiar and robust testing environment integrated into your company's application lifecycle workflow. Web Test Generator for Visual Studio provides a runtime module that ensures errorless test replay in Visual Studio environment and adds reliability to the testing process.
