Greetings

Currenlty we are finding the ways to load test our .net4 application, Please inform if Telerik test studio supports load testing .net4 applications.

Client Application = WPF (Desktop)
Application Server/communication = WCF (Currently a self hosted WCF application/server but in future we planning to deploy it as windows service)
Database = SQL Server 2008

Let me know if more information is required for reply.

Regards,
Zohaib Azhar

Hi Zohaib,

I am sorry but Test Studio does not support Load Testing against WPF applications and there are no plans to add it. It only works with Web applications.

Thanks Plamen for reply.

One another question is about load testing what if WCF services hosted on IIS server and client uses the HTTP protocol for communication.

Hi,

The short answer is maybe. Our load testing was designed to test web applications. It works by simply playing back the recorded HTTP traffic without any processing (except for dynamic targets contained in cookies e.g. session id, user id, etc.). If your WCF service requires any processing by the client the load testing won't work correctly for you because Test Studio load testing can't handle any processing of the WCF data. However if blindly playing back what was recorded then yes it should work for you.

Kind regards,
