Java Agent running once VS is up

  • 1.  Java Agent running once VS is up

    Posted 02-13-2018 01:39 PM

    Do we need a Java Agent running on the server once the recording is complete and VS is deployed?

    I recorded EJB traffic and virtualized it.

    EJB requests are sent to iiop://*** url. Cant we just change that and point to Devtest url instead of routing the traffic through Java Agent.

     

    I understand its Java objects traffic and agent is doing some conversion but why cant we do it on the devtest vse server side.

     

    More info appreciated.

    thanks

    Hi Abhinav, 

     

    Yes, the agent must be running.

    However, the capture level should be reduced to "counts only".

     

    When a Virtual Service is deployed the agent is notified with details about the VS.

    The calls proceed normally through the live system until a virtualized call is encountered. 

    That call is then rerouted by the agent to the VSE.

    I understand the agent must be running. My question is why? why cant the VSE handle an iiop call like a http call.

    Hi Abhinav, 

     

     

    An EJB recording would require the agent because the VS works at the EJB level.

    However if you are recording at a url level, then the Workstation recorder or one of the Portal recorder may be a better fit and the agent would not be required.
