Selected User Forum Posts

Beginning in mid-2010 we have directed all technical support questions to the eValid User Forum. We have learned that when one user has an issue, all users can profit from the answer.

Here is an additional selection of some of the posts that we think would be of general interest.

Webinar: Performance Testing Mobile Web Apps

Run 1,000's of Mobile Browser Users
Full AJAX Realism for Any Mobile Device
Easily Identify Performance Bottlenecks

Wednesday, 25 January 2012
2:00 PM Eastern Time / 11:00 AM Pacific Time

QA/Testing/Tuning/Performance projects need to qualify performance of complex AJAX web applications -- within strict budget and time constraints -- to make sure their server-stack setups can meet the load.

The traditional methods of ramping up load, based on using HTTP/S simulations or "VUs", don't always work when asynchronous AJAX applications are involved. VU's don't do AJAX. You need a browser.

eValid server loading methods offer both quick-to-create, realistic, and fully synchronized AJAX functional tests. Plus you can lift those tests into performance/loading scenarios that can involve 100's or 1,000's or 10,000's of Browser Users ("BUs") per machine.

In this webinar you'll learn: how special eValid commands overcome problems with variable-time playback dependency; how to create full-reality AJAX tests quickly; how to adjust tests to be totally self-synchronizing under stressed AJAX conditions; how to incorporate tests in an eValid LoadTest scenario; how to launch 100's or 1,000's or 10,000's of Browser User (BU) instances; and, how to analyze consolidated performance summary data to identify server-stack bottlenecks.

This unique approach demonstrates how eValid becomes a genuine force multiplier in your web application performance testing efforts.

Webinar Topic Summary:
  • eValid Architecture and Structure: How eValid functional and performance testing works.
  • Functional Testing: How to make reliable recordings of AJAX applications.
  • Making AJAX Tests "LoadTest Safe": How to augment tests for complete AJAX synchronization.
  • Creating LoadTest Scenarios: How to use the LoadTest scenario editor to organize realistic LoadTest control scripts.
  • Running LoadTests: How to launch single and multiple-instance runs using "cloud computing" resources.
  • Finding Bottlenecks: How to read the LoadTest and other raw data to help spot server-stack issues.

Mobile Testing FAQs

As eValid users know, eValid is a single-point solution for testing the functional quality, performance, and supporting server capacity for all kinds of web applications -- including Mobile Devices that run web applications.

We've prepared a Mobile Testing Technology -- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that answers some of the most common questions about how eValid fills this role. Please take a look and don't hesitate to respond or ask questions.

Happy New Year!

We would like to wish everyone in the eValid community -- users, resellers, and visitors and potential customers alike -- the very best of health, happiness and success in the coming year!

As more and more applications move into the "mobile" domain, you will see more and more challenges in testing these complex applications. As some of our technical work in the past several months has shown, the quality and relative performance of mobile applications can be indeed be tested reliably and effectively. In coming months you can expect to see more and more about testing complex mobile web applications from the eValid team.
