Subject Re: Login failed - javascript
Date Wed, 12 Jun 2013 02:41:12 GMT
Take a look at this code snippet I found for the login page.

<script type="text/javascript">
// activate login feature if script is activated and browser is supported
if ($.browser.msie && $.browser.version < 8) {
$('#browser-redirection').css('display', '');
} else {
$('.script-checking').css('display', '');
$('#warnings').css('display', 'none');
}
</script>

So my understanding is that the login feature is not getting activated at
all as JMeter does not run javascript.
Is that correct?
Is there any way for me to simulate a user logging in with this situation?
