Can RDP Protocol be used for a Linux based application

Application Background:

The application we need to test has a SWING based client. This client communicates with the underlying Webservices deployed on a Glassfish App server running on Fedora host. The swing based client is accessed via a POS touchscreen terminal.

Testing Done Till Date:

We created web_custom_request () so as to test the web services and comment on their performance. Although we were able to improve the service performance, the end user still faces some performance challenges. The question that we got from our client is "If we can include GUI as well in the Performance testing as it may be that is cause of concern. "

Probable Solution:
Connecting to the POS system/ servers using Remote desktop. Installed xRDP on host machine and able to access the server via Remote Desktop from machine where VuGen is installed. Able to connect to the host/ server machine. Able to launch application.

Issue Facing:

While recording, we can

- Connect to server host
- Launch the application and successfully browse it.
- We can see events being recorded in the recording window of LR with RDP protocol.When we stop recording, we get message "/* Requested desktop size of 1280 x 1024, but received desktop size of 1920 x 1200 */" in the script and nothing is recorded in the script after the connection is established.

RDP server you are connecting to should be with Windows Operating sistem (OS)

Please find the the list of supported OSs in the Product Availability Matrix (PAM) Patch 1


If the problem is with the recording of the application you can try using ProxyRecording option available in LR 11.52 . More information is available in the following links.
