Subject Re; Functional Mode Checkbox and Quick and Dirty Functional Testi ng
Date Thu, 05 Sep 2002 12:53:21 GMT

I thought I had sent this mail previously but it seems as though it didn't
go?
Sorry for the delay.

I have not yet figured out why the html page is not always completely
captured.
However when I use the "View Results" visualizer, the full page if there?

It seems to stop consistently in the same place in this page.

Also I put the page through an html checker and it passed (plus it displays
properly in both IE 5.x,6 and NS 4.x and 6.x.

Any ideas?
Andy

Sounds good.
One more thing I've discovered in my testing; the html for one of my pages
is not being fully loaded into the log file; is there any limitation to the
storing of html that you know of?

(Another curious thing is that the html saved changes all the html angle
brackets to &lt; and &gt; Not a problem just curious)

The page in question does display properly in both Netscape and IE.

This would limit the usefulness of this new feature; there was no error
detected but I did not have an assertion for </html>

Thanks
Andy

Here's kinda what I imagined:

The visualizer looks like the View Results Tree (ie, there's a tree that
holds results or some 
sort, you click on a node, you see the details below).

It also has 2 additional fields where the user can specify the name of two
requests in the test.  
The visualizer will then create diffs against these two requests, and from
the diff info, create 
the nodes in the tree.  Thus, each node in the tree isn't a normal result
but rather, the diff 
between the two specified results.

I don't know exactly what your needs are, so you make it whatever you want,
of course.  The 
visualizer could be dependent on a "diff" command being on the system, and
windows users 
can always install cygwin (it's the first thing I do on any windows box).
It might also be worth a 
few minutes to search the web for a diff Java implementation.
