After you set up your system for proxy recording, you should record a trial script to
make sure the proxy recording yields the results you expect.
Proxy Recording Use Overview
When choosing proxy recording, you need to:
identify and define the client/server pairs that will communicate through the
proxy
create a proxy server, and
specify network protocols to include in the script that Robot generates.
To set up and use proxy recording:
1. Start Robot on the proxy computer.
2. In the Proxy Administration dialog box, match up the proxy computer and port
with each server to be used in the test.
For details, see Creating a Proxy Computer on page 6-9.
3. In the
Method:Proxy
Method:Proxy
Method:Proxy
Method:Proxy
tab of the Session Record Options dialog box, match up
each client with the server it will send requests to. Be sure to specify the actual
server and not the proxy computer.
For details, see Identifying Client/Server Pairs on page 6-9.
4. Configure each client to send requests to the proxy computer, not to the server.
For example, if the client will be sending requests to an Oracle database, use the
Oracle client configuration software to specify the proxy computer's address and
port number, not the server's.
5. On each client computer, a tester should start the client application and navigate
to the point where recording will begin.
6. On the proxy computer, enable recording (

).
7. With recording enabled, each tester at each client computer performs the
transactions to record.
NOTE: If you are proxy recording against an Oracle database, the server should
not be set up to redirect. Consult your Oracle documentation for information.
