  • Retrieved results from each of the test tools after every test and analyzed the results. We developed several customized tools using excel macro and Perl scripting to condition the results from raw data. Performance graphs were generated using them.


QA Lead

Tools: HP Load Runner v9.52, QC, JIRA, Quality center


  • The biggest challenge in scripting was the replication of the xml files transfer using Java Protocol by embedding the XML file within the java script and sending it across the servers, thus eliminating the usage of web servers and JSP pages.
  • Initiation of the Buynet client from HP performance center was another challenge, which was broken by developing an exclusive batch job, which can be called from LR scripts when executed from HP Load generators
