I’ve recently been involved in helping to train a new performance tester here at Trust IV. As a starting point, I thought I’d introduce my colleague to the WebTours application which simulates a simple airline booking system and provides new testers with an application where they can practice core skills such as script parameterisation and correlation as well as application error handling.
My colleague found that the HP documentation was unclear when it came to running the application in Windows 8. The documentation describes starting the webserver and browsing to the sample application via the Windows Start Menu. Since this is awkward using Windows 8, we created this video guide to help new users to get started.
