We recently began using RPT , installing version 7.0.2 for testing java applications and immediately encountered problems with recording. A RPT http test with digital certificates appears to hang when the java console is loaded. No error is recorded, nothing in the log, but the application start-up page never seems to finish loading and I get a java console not responding and IE not responding error eventually. Two other machines running version are able to record tests within the java application and I duplicated those certificate and browser settings to the best of my knowledge.
One interesting result ,I was able to export a test recorded in the java app in vers and ran it with no errors. Modified the test, saved it as version 7.0.2 and ran again with no errors so the problem may be related to recording.
