Context

Push frameworks are used when testing applications that use Push technology. This is a type of communication in which information is pushed by the server towards the browser, contrary to the normal Pull principle whereby the browser initiates the request for information.

Definition

Push frameworks can be used to automatically create User Paths that are compatible for use in a Push environment.

For an application to operate in Push mode, a Push channel is required through which the data is fed from the server to the client. Handling the Push channel requires special tools and concepts specific to this particular type of application. Each framework allows creating User Paths, after recording, that take into account the Push channel.

How it works:

  1. During the recording, NeoLoad detects that the recorded application is using a Push framework.
  2. At the end of the recording, NeoLoad offers to create a modified copy of the User Path that has just been recorded.
  3. This User Path is named <original name>_<framework name>.
  4. This copy contains all the changes specific to the detected Push framework and that will help easily design the User Path and enable a playback as realistic as possible.

    The User Path tree contains now two User Paths:
