JDS releases VuGen tools

JDS toolsOver the past few years, JDS has developed a number of useful tools internally in support of performance testing and writing HP Business Process Monitor scripts. These tools simplify and automate some complexity of script writing by resolving some of the more mundane, routine aspects of scripting in VuGen. After refining these tools, JDS has chosen to share these tools with JDS customers and the broader HP community. These tools are intended to provide VuGen scripters with access to a set of utilities that are commonly used by JDS consultants.


Convert Web Vusers to Java

Converts C-based Web (HTTP/HTML) VuGen scripts into a Java-based virtual user

Reformat web_custom_request

Reformats a web_custom_request into a more readable form regardless of whether it is XML/SOAP, JSON or Form data

Data Format Converter

Converts common data formats to/from a variety of formats including HTML, Base64, URL encoding, Hexadecimal, Binary. This tool can also be used to calculate time since the epoch and MD5 or SHA-1 encryption.

VuGen Code Highlighter

Mimics the colours used by VuGen script-view, which is helpful when preparing documentation. Please note, this highlighter will work with a whole host of other languages as well.


JDS will be releasing more tools in the coming weeks


Hi Chris,

Wow, that was a fast turnaround time!
Reformat tool is working like a charm again.



Just wanted to say that your tools are great and I have been using them for the last couple years. Thank you for making them available to the greater VuGen community.
I find the “Reformat web_custom_request” tool particularly useful.

I have one query about it though. When I used it late last year/earlier this year, I was able to copy in code containing 10, 20, 30 web_custom_request’s in and it would reformat all of them in one go.
Now when I do this, it will only reformat the first web_custom_request in the code.

Is this by design or is it meant to be doing all web_custom_request’s contained within the code.

Thanks again for making these tools available to everyone.

Hi Peter,

Looks like some recent updates broke the functionality that you mentioned. I have now fixed the script so that you can reformat many web_custom_request()’s at once. Give it a try and let me know if you have any more issues.

Thanks for your comments and thanks for using our tools :-)
