I have a web application which i would like to automate the testing for functional as well as load testing.
However , it has the following features which i feel will hinder the most common automation tools from functioning.
The web application throws a SSL client authentication prompt in the login page after clicking on Submit button where i need to choose the appropriate certificate for the user to login.
In form pages , once again , the form data is signed using an ActiveX control or a firefox addon , which will throw a prompt similar to the SSL client authentication prompt from which the user selects his key to sign the data beofre submitting to the server.
Is it possible to automate the user activity in this application from user login , few page traversals, a form submission with the signing and logout . How can this be done ?[Tools etc].
If this is possible , then will i be able to scale this activity to say 100 users at the same time ?
