LoadRunner 11 comes with a new protocol called TruClient. It records a business process using the Firefox browser. By default, the browser does not come with plugins such as Firebug. However, you can still add a Firefox plugin and use it while using TruClient during scripting process. For demonstration purpose, I will show you how to add "Firebug" plugin to the TruClient browser and the steps are as follows:
1: Select the TruClient protocol and then click Tools -> Ajax TruClient Browser Configuration option. An "Ajax TruClient Browser Configuration" popup window is displayed.
2: Click on "Extensions" tab. All existing plugin list will be displayed. See the screenshot below.
3: Click on "Get Add-Ons" button. All the recommended plugin list is displayed.
4: Type in "Firebug" in the search textbox and click "Search" icon. A result list is displayed. Incase you do not see the "Firebug" plugin, click on "See all results..." link. This will bring up the list of all the plugins in a browser.
5: Click on "Add to Firefox" button next to the Firebug plugin and follow all the necessary steps. Once the Firebug is installed. Restart the Firefox browser.
6: If the browser is open, close the browser and click "Develop Script" button in VUGen. This will open up a Firefox browser. At the bottom right corner of the browser, you will now see a firebug icon. Firebug plugin is now ready to be used while you are recording a script using TruClient protocol.
