Can eValid delete the cache midway during a playback test

Postby LDuncan » Mon Feb 20, 2017 10:28 am

Morning.

I have a web application but, I want to test them separately in two parts.

To do this I need to clear the cache half-way through my test...can eValid do that?

Thanks

a great question to ask LDuncan.

It is not uncommon to test separate parts of a web page independently.

The idea is that the page is doing several kinds of things and you want to "decompose" the testing into constituent elements.

Yes, it makes sense to delete all cache entries midway.

In doing this, however, caution is advised!

(That's basically a standard warning in that this kind of thing can lead to a tricky outcomes!)

The commands of interest are simple:

"DeleteCache" will delete all of the current contents of the cache.

After this any new pages needed (navigated to) will be load completely from scratch.

"DeleteCookies" does the same thing for any cookie files that are stored in the cache.

These two commands are independent of each other, in the sense that if you really want to clear the cache of both page references and cookies then you have to do BOTH commands.
