  • 1.  How to enable javascript on browser

    Posted Mon February 22, 2021 04:03 PM

    Hello,

    I'm seeing an error message within the application while playing back the script "enable JavaScript on browser to use the app". How can I enable the JavaScript on the browser ? Any help is appreciated. Thanks !

    Browser : Firefox

    RPT Version : 10.0.2

    I made sure that "JavaScript" has been enabled on browser. Is there something I should change in the Rational Performance tester ?

    Regards,

    Hi, this refers to the Browser tab underneath Protocol Data view.

    Technically this is not an error but more informational.

    Javascript is not executed at playback of a test in RPT because running javascript is something a browser can do, and at playback RPT doesn't use a browser to play back the test, it sends recorded HTTP requests under the covers.

    In fact a test RPT is really a java program with no UI.

    So for the browser tab RPT will render the page the best it can which means using static elements, but nowadays a live webpage will be rendered by executing javascript or other code.

    When such code is executed in a browser it usually puts no load on the web application server itself, this is a client side activity.

    If the javascript does make a call to the web application server the this would be done by a HTTP Get or Post request. This Get or Post is recorded and played back by RPT like any other recorded request
