  • Browser communication port: Specifies the browser communication port.
  • Browser Timeout Settings: Specifies the length of delay (in milliseconds) after which SOAtest and/or Virtualize should stop waiting for browser startup or a user action and consider it to be "timed out."

  • Wait Condition Default Timeout Settings: Specifies the length of delay (in seconds) after which SOAtest and/or Virtualize should stop waiting for the activity specified in the wait condition to occur and consider it to be "timed out."

  • Debug Options> Print debugging information: During recording of a web scenario, it is possible that an action taken is not recorded by SOAtest and/or Virtualize. Enabling this option will allow messages to be printed to the message console during recording, with information about what events SOAtest and/or Virtualize handled, any locators that may have been generated, and if applicable, any exceptions that took place during recording.

  • Error Reporting> Report website's scripting errors: Configures SOAtest and/or Virtualize to report scripting errors that occur during scenario execution. In Internet Explorer, the Selenium Web-Driver framework will not report JavaScript errors on the page to SOAtest and/or Virtualize; this reporting is supported only for the legacy engine.

  • Allowable Binary Files in Traffic Viewer and Outputs: Allows binary files with the specified extensions or MIME types to be used in the Traffic Viewer and output. By default, only text files will be allowed.
  • Browser Contents Viewer Rendering Engine: Enables you to specify what browser is used for the Browsear Contents Viewer tool

     , which can be attached to the Browser Playback tool.

    • The default option (Same browser used for playback) is generally the recommended option because some web applications generate their pages differently based on the browser used. Using the same browser that was used during the playback can help ensure that pages display properly in the Browser Contents Viewer. Note that if the playback browser was Chrome, the Firefox rendering engine is used.
    • When Internet Explorer is selected, the version of IE that is used depends on what version of IE is installed on the machine running SOAtest and/or Virtualize. The Internet Explorer option is available only on Windows.

    • When Firefox is selected, the version of Firefox that is used depends on what Eclipse is being used to run SOAtest and/or Virtualize. It can range from Firefox 3.0.1 to Firefox 10, depending on what OS is being used.

    • If the particular web application being tested does not render properly in the Browser Contents Viewer, you could try configuring this option to use either Internet Explorer or Firefox specifically (rather than use the default Same browser used for playback option) to see if using a specific rendering engine will improve how the page is shown in the Browser Contents Viewer.
  • HTML Content Fetch Mode: Enables you to determine whether the contents of hidden frames are displayed in the pre- and post-action HTML viewer. This can impact record and playback speed, as well as file size. It is possible to use one mode on some of your team’s SOAtest and/or Virtualize machines (e.g., desktop installation), and a different mode on others (e.g, the Server machine running in command-line mode).

Technical Support Settings

If you are experiencing problems with Virtualize, the best way to remedy the problem is to create a zip archive containing the related files, then send that zip file to Parasoft's support team. To facilitate this process, you can have the product automatically create an archive when problems occur. On average, these archives are about half a megabyte, and are created in about one minute.

By default, an archive is not created when problems occur. You can either manually prepare and send a support archive when needed, or you can modify Parasoft  archive creation options so that the product automatically prepares and sends an archive when problems occur.

To configure the product  to automatically prepare and send archives when problems occur:

  1. Open the Technical Support panel by choosing Parasoft> Preferences, then selecting the Parasoft> Technical Support category.
  2. Check Enable auto-creation of support archives.
  3. Customize additional options as needed. Note that Enable auto-creation of support archives and Send archives by email are not applicable to Virtualize.
  4. Click Apply, then OK.

To manually create a support archive:

  • Choose Parasoft> Preferences, select the Technical Support category, select the desired archive options, then click Create Archive.

To open the Technical Support Archive Manager, which allows you to review, e-mail, or delete recent support archives:

  • Choose Parasoft> Preferences, select the Technical Support category, then click Browse Recent Archives.

When creating a support archive it is best to ensure that it contains all the info which is relevant to the  problem and does not contain any unrelated info. To ensure that detailed logs are sent to the standard output console, add the following argument to virtualizecli:

Adding Dictionaries

You can expand SOAtest’s built-in dictionary by extending it with additional sets of ispell-format dictionaries (such as dictionaries for language other than English, dictionaries of industry-specific terms, etc.). Each dictionary set has a name and one or more dictionaries.

To add an additional  dictionary set:

  1. Save the dictionaries in the SOAtest installation directory.
  2. Click the Add  button, then use the file chooser to select the set of dictionaries you want to add.

Adding Non-Text Characters or Words Containing Non-Text to the Dictionary

By default, SOAtest treats non-text characters as white space and does not allow you to add dictionary words that contain non-text characters. If you want SOAtest to consider a designated non-text character as a valid character within a word (rather than as one unit of white space), you need to add that character to the list of allowable non-text characters. This allows you to identify spelling errors in words that contain allowed non-text characters and to add dictionary words that contain allowed non-text characters.

To add non-text characters to the list of allowable non-text characters:

  • Enter them in the Allowable non-text characters field. If you want to allow multiple non-text characters, list them one after the other—do not separate them with a space character, comma, or other delimiter.

MIME Type Settings

The MIME Types panel lets you add and remove MIME types. In addition, it lets you specify the location of your preferred text and XML editors and lets you specify what editor you want to use to edit all files that have a particular MIME type.

    Auto Beautify: Tells SOAtest to automatically beautify XML messages in the selected tool or tools (Traffic Viewer, Diff, Editor) if the message is under the specified size (10 KB is the default setting).

  • Character Encoding: You can enable System default to configure SOAtest and/or Virtualize to use the default character set for the particular system being used. Enable Custom to encode characters from the list of encodings available on the JVM being used.
  • Save settings: Specifies what file format to use for saving project files (e.g., .pva, .pvn, .tst, .changetemplate).

    See the following sections for additional information about each type, including performance and forward compatibility: 

  • Default timeout (milliseconds): Allows you to enter the length of delay (in milliseconds) after which SOAtest should consider your FTP, telnet, or HTTP requests to be “timed out.” The default is 30000 milliseconds.
  • Report each duplicate error that occurs on the same line: Tells SOAtest to show only the first instance of duplicate errors that occur for the same line of code.
  • Reset Cookies: Allows you to clear the current global cookies so that next HTTP invocations start a new session.
  • Enable the Automatically backup project files option and specify a file size threshold for .tst and/or .pva files in the Warn on file size large than (MB) field to be notified when the size of the file exceeds the threshold. You can then reduce the size (and prevent performance problems) by dividing it into smaller files.

...

HTTP proxies that do not require authentication can be used while managing remote SOAtest and Virtualize servers. HTTP proxies that require authentication will not be applied when adding a remote SOAtest or Virtualize server to the server tree.

...

Scanning Settings

This Scanning panel specifies settings related to how SOAtest scans Web applications. Available options include:

  • Agent name: Determines the user agent that SOAtest uses to identify itself.
  • FTP Log: Determines whether (and how) to create a log of FTP connections made to scan Web resources from SOAtest.
  • Script options:
    • Script extensions: Determines what files SOAtest considers "scripts".
    • Limit the number of script items per page to: Determines the maximum number of script items per page that SOAtest will consider. If a page has more script items than the number that you allow, SOAtest will place a "red flag" icon next to the related Project tree node.
    • Load JavaScript: Determines whether or not SOAtest loads JavaScript.
    • Simulate JavaScript events: Determines how SOAtest simulates JavaScript events (such as opening and closing additional windows, running timers, and so on). If you choose single time, SOAtest triggers each handler once, with default arguments. If you choose multiple times, SOAtest tries to create multiple kinds of events while loading a site (in order to find new links).

Scripting Settings

The Scripting panel allows you to specify properties used for custom scripts.

...

  • Global HTTP Authentication Properties: Allows you to specify global HTTP authentication properties that can be used when configuring HTTP protocols within an applicable tool. Select the Perform Authentication check box and enter the Username and Password to authenticate the request, and select either Basic, NTLM, or Digest, from the Authentication Type drop-down list. For Kerberos, enter the Service Principal to authenticate the request. If the correct username and password, or the correct service principal, are not used, the request will not be authenticated.
  • Kerberos realm: Specify the Kerberos realm associated with your network. By convention, this is typically your domain name in all caps (e.g. PARASOFT.COM).
  • KDC server: Specify the hostname of your Key Distribution Center (e.g. kdc.parasoft.com).
  • Check Ticket: This will execute a simple test to locate a cached Kerberos TGT (Ticket Granting Ticket) to grant access to the service. SOAtest and/or Virtualize will not be able to communicate with the service if it cannot first locate a valid TGT. For more information about Kerberos, see 

    Conditional ContentProduct: (SOAVirt)Product: (SOAVirt)sv-attr:0A010204015A9054C88481D043445E2F0A010204015CF6008A11EEF43AC91334

  • Trust all certificates: Enable this option to accept any certificate. This is useful if you want to load pages whose certificates are not "trusted."

  • Use default Java cacerts: Enable this option to accept only certificates from the standard list of Java-trusted certificate vendors.

  • Use client keystore: Enables you to specify settings for both the server side and client side certificates for SSL through the Client Keystore options.

...

When performing a load test, where multiple virtual users provide the same user credentials, the KDC will respond as if a replay attack is occurring and errors will be thrown. This is expected behavior and it is uncertain at this point whether there is a work-around.

Note
titleNote

Kerberos provides a mechanism to prevent so-called "replay" attacks where a user tries to provide captured duplicate credentials for a service in order to gain access to them.

Traffic File Processing Settings

The Traffic File Processing panel lets you globally indicate that you want certain values (such as times-tamps) ignored whenever:

  • you are creating parameterized .pvas from traffic, and
  • request body correlations are configured automatically.

Virtualize is automatically configured to ignore timestamps—based on the regular expression [0-9]{4}-[0-9]{2}-[0-9]{2}T[0-9]{2}:[0-9]{2}:[0-9]{2}([.][0-9]{1,3})?(([+-][0-9]{2}:[0-9]{2})|Z)?

You can add or modify exclusions using the table controls. Element names are specified as exact matches or using a wildcard (*) to match everything. Values are specified as regular expressions.

...

UDDI Settings

The UDDI panel lets you set the UDDI inquiry endpoint, which is the endpoint that you want SOAtest to reference when performing dynamic router resolution. If you specify a UDDI registry here, the SOAP Client tool can search for a service by querying that registry using the UDDI serviceKey specified in the SOAP Client parameters. If you do not specify a UDDI registry here, you have to configure your SOAP Client tool so that the server endpoint is hard-coded as a router value.

WSDL History

The WSDL panel lets you review or modify the WSDLs that have been used in tools and projects. These WSDLs will be available for selection in relevant drop-down boxes. This way, if you need to specify the same WSDL multiple times, you don’t need to constantly type it in over and over again. 

...

The XML Conversion settings panel lets you register data models for fixed length messages. 

...
