Will eValid recall where this are if i lose my connection

Hello.

Is eValid stateless?

What I mean is, if I lose connection, will eValid remember where things were?

Thanks

Good question ChuckC.

For one thing, certainly HTTP/S is stateless...after a transaction is finished, zap, all intermediate state information is gone.

It is true that browsers, eValid included, are technically "stateless".

What this means in theory is that supposedly the browser does not remember anything after each session communicating with a server is finished.

But as you know, in a situation where the connection is list, there is residual information in the browser cache.

In the settings you have chosen in the browser setup, and in the current contents of the page of HTML that has been rendered for you on the browser face.

All of that being said, there are still some things that are almost certainly lost when the connect to the server is broken.

To name just one type of information, any login details that you had to supply to the server (for example, if the server uses ".http access" type authentication) will be lost.

You'll have to repeat the login.

For your testing, you should assume a non-interrupted connection; this will maximize the value of the test script.

You will have to deal with the residual problems of a broken connection separately.

Hope this helps.
