Question on GWT and JavaScript

Postby JDrake » Fri Jan 15, 2016 1:24 pm

Hello, Happy Friday!

Can eValid test GWT when the JavaScript is delivered obfuscated?

Thanks

Good question, thanks for asking JDrake.

As it turns out, whether an object is obfuscated or not makes no difference to the way the DOM behaves.

It does make a difference if you want to read the entire JavaScript passage and study how it works...the main goal of most kinds of obfuscation is to prevent this from happening.

In effect, the browser disambiguate the obfuscated stuff without difficulty.

Regardless of how the JavaScript is delivered, the DOM will show clearly what is located where. Here is how you use the eValid PageMap feature to "spy" on the internals of the DOM:

Even for a dynamically generated element, such as those generated by GWT, once you know SOMETHING about it, you can find it.

This is called "finding a fixpoint" in the DOM.

You can pivot all kinds of synthetic actions on such a DOM element.

Here is a summary of those resources:

Good luck in your testing!
