Thanks for asking about this eValid feature AdamsP.

The cache of files that download while browsing a page.

The cache usually contains page components such as images, cookies, JavaScript files, cascading style sheet files, etc.

Using the cache this way assures that the eValid playback is very realistic.

What if you wish to run with an empty cache at the start of, or even part way through, a script playback?

You might wish to do this to simulate starting the test with an empty cache, or to force re-download of a complex intermediate page (e.g., when that page contents may have changed based on what the test you are doing has already accomplished).

eValid provides an extrinsic command to wipe out the contents of the cache at any point in playback, as specified by the user in the playback script.

Follow these simple steps to delete the cache contents during playback by inserting a "DeleteCache" command:

(1) Create a recording.

(2) Stop recording.

(3) Identify which part of the playback will no longer require the use of the Cache.

(4) From the eValid script dialog box, click on "Edit > Insert > Extrinsic Commands > DeleteCache".

(5) On playback, eValid will automatically delete the contents of the cache at the point where the "Delete Cache" command appears.

> What about cookies?

Depending on the option selected in the eValid Cache Manager, cookies may or may not be kept when the "DeleteCache" command runs.
