A topic that has come up several times in the recent past is about testing Adobe LiveCycle Workspace. I thought it will be useful to provide some information around this for the benefit of a larger LC community.

If the objective is Load testing, in-house Adobe uses a commercial tool call Silk Performer which can capture and replay the AMF3 interactions between Workspace and the server for scalable load generation. There are other tools that work with AMF3.Some people have asked if QTP can be used for load testing – It is unlikely that QTP is a good fit, since it is not suited to scalable load generation.

Adobe recommends using Silk Performer or Neotys Neload for load testing of Workspace. Check out the links below that may provide more insight into this topic:

If the objective is Functional testing then Workspace is configured for QTP testing out of the box.  If you install QTP, restart your computer, then install the Flex plug-in for QTP, restart your computer then you can start automating your Workspace tests.  However for QTP automation you should use the Workspace automation URL rather than the default URL.  So rather than http://server:port/Workspace/Main.html you would use http://server:port/Workspace/Main-auto.html.
