WebLOAD 10.3 – What’s New

Push technology support

WebLOAD supports applications using push mechanisms including:

  • Polling – where requests are sent from the browser to the server at regular intervals
  • Streaming – where a connection remains open and the server sends data when it becomes available
  • Long polling – where the browser request is kept on hold until the server can deliver a valid response
  • Server-sent events – which allow a web page to get updates from a server

Load testing with Selenium WebDriver

Run Selenium WebDriver scripts in WebLOAD and combine simulated virtual user load with real browsers to evaluate real user experience.

  • Record tests in Selenium and automatically export them into WebLOAD scripts using the WebLOAD Selenium Plugin
  • Execute selenium WebDriver scripts from WebLOAD
  • View browser performance measurements combined with the load performance statistics on the same graph

To learn more, see the Selenium performance testing page.

Git repository integration

WebLOAD scripts can be stored and managed in Git, the open source version control library. You can:

  • Save and share tests, scripts, templates and data files
  • Perform repository tasks – checkin, checkout, tag, etc – directly from WebLOAD’s IDE and console
  • Backup and share performance testing data
  • Work with several repositories in parallel

XMLHttpRequest Object

WebLOAD supports the standard JavaScript object XMLHttpRequest for making HTTP requests. This enables the easy integration of JavaScript frameworks or code that relies on this object.
