Does Loadrunner support the recording of a SAP Netweaver Business Client for HTML?

Solution

The communication between the NWBC for HTML and the Web Dynpro server is based on the HTTP/HTTPS protocols and it is possible to be recorded with LoadRunner (VuGen).

Due to the secure nature of SAP based applications, however, the resulting script might contain a lot of dynamically generated values i.e. cookies, logon tickets, session ids, cross site scripting (XSS) defense code.

In such cases, a manual correlation of the recorded script might need to be performed along with the use of the XSS and XML data format extensions (DFE).
