Does eValid handle doing site analysis for an application that has dynamically generated pages?

The site analysis scans are based on the extraction from the DOM of links that appear in the page when the page is first loaded.

This means that, if the page content changes AFTER the first download, then the site analysis scanning won't reflect the changes that were made after that first read.

In a typical scan, each page is read only one time; this is done to make sure that the work list for the spider does not have any infinite loops.

On the other hand, if you later re-scan from the page that has changed then you will get a different result.

Generally we recommend to do site analysis scans only on websites that are constant -- that don't change content -- but this doesn't mean that such a scan is valueless. It'll depend on your own requirements.
