Recording of WebSocket Connections

After you install the Module for WebSocket Testing, a new option appears in the Recorder settings. It is "Allow recording of WebSocket connections". By default it is turned on and WAPT Recorder supports the recording of WebSockets.

Note that you should use an external browser to record WebSocket connections. Use the option External Browser in the "Recording Options" dialog which appears after you click the Rec button on the toolbar.


Recorder creates a WebSocket Connection and a number of WebSocket Send Message items in a profile. The number of Send Message items is equal to the number of messages sent to the corresponding socket. Send Message items are displayed in the tree view in the chronological order. Received messages are also recorded and saved in the chronological order together with the sent messages in the WebSocket Connection item.
