Problem recording binary data
Hi to Everybody,
The application I'm trying to record has the following architecture:
Applet talking HTTP with servlet on WebSphere.
Some responses contain data (in the request body) in a text format and some of them in binary format. The data is de serialized in the applet.
Whenever I'm recording requests containing text data everything is Ok. But when it comes to "binary responses", the application fails to receive this data. I'm getting socket error, something like "Failed to receive data" and some other applicative error saying something about wrong format (Unfortunately currently I can't get the exact error since it happened at customer site. I'll try later).
Without recording everything works fine, of cause. It seems that during recording OpenSTA ruins the binary data format in some way.
Does somebody has any idea about possible workaround?
Thanks a lot,
Re: Problem recording binary data
There are some bugs in this area. Both with the gateway crashing and binary data getting munged.
The best thing you can do is to check the existing bug reports and add data to one that sounds close to the issue you're having:
The only way bugs are ever going to get fixed is if a developer can reproduce the problem easily and in thge simplest manner possible. So it is always worth adding as much data as possible to the BugDB.
Please don't try to use it as a support forum or submit duplicate reports though - thgey will just be deleted.
