Can data entry be automated using Vugen
To automate a time consuming data entry task on a Production Application, the data entry needs to be performed using the GUI or non-gui API (Can not add the data directly to the tables).
Can a VuGen script be used for automated data entry in a production environment (this would not be executed from VuGen and not in a scenario from the controller).
To automate data entry using Vugen, you can do so if you have client server architecture. You can use Vugen to simulate the client requests made to the server, and create a Vugen script to automate your data entry process. What is the protocol used for communication between the client and the server? This specific protocol can be used to record the business process.
However, if you don’t have a client server architecture (ie. 2 machines involved) and if everything is a client side activity, you can develop a HP QuickTest Professional (QTP) script to automate your data entry process.
For recording client side activity using Vugen, you can do so using Citrix and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
