With the move to LoadRunner 11.5, there have been updates and changes to the AJAX TruClient protocol. More specifically, there have been improvements and modifications for using it with FireFox as well as a new addition in way of support for Internet Explorer 9 with the AJAX TruClient protocol.
With the release of Firefox 8 in November of 2011, Loadrunner 11.5 takes advantage of the improvements that are brought to the table by Mozilla. These items include improved audio and video elements, and other HTML5 improvements.
Other additions include: the ability to re-use and share out functions, event handlers to support asynchronous behaviors, and automatic transactions per step.
AJAX TruClient now supports IE 9. This is now available for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. Applications to be tested must work in IE9 (standard mode) to be officially supported.
This is an important step forward for companies that build software that only support IE or if IE is the preferred browser of choice. Up until now, testers were forced to test TruClient against Firefox sites and ended up finding bugs that only occur in FireFox. At the same time, the bugs that existed in IE only were not detected. AJAX TruClient for IE solves this dilemma.
