Convert LoadRunner to Open-Source Selenium in Minutes

More than half of developers find open-source community support an important factor when choosing the load testing solution. 77% of developers agree LoadRunner isn’t suitable for open-source initiatives. That’s why we recommend LoadRunner users to search for newer tools when starting a new testing project.

 

The free Script Converter can convert LoadRunner TruClient to Selenium and LoadRunner HTTP to Apache JMeter™ and LoadRunner in minimum time. You can also convert to Taurus and BlazeMeter. In the last blog post we explained how to convert your LoadRunner HTTP scripts to JMeter, Taurus and BlazeMeter. This time, we will show how to convert to Selenium.
