Testing of Requests with Binary Data

Proprietary HTTP-based protocols may use binary messages to pass data from clients to the server and vice versa. For example, such message can contain a serialized Java object.

The Module for Binary Formats lets you work with any type of such messages. Binary bodies of HTTP requests are converted to the hexadecimal representation. You can edit it and insert variables containing hexadecimal code of session-specific binary values.

A special additional function Binary Search is provided for the processing of binary server responses. It can extract binary values from them by the left and right boundaries and/or by the offset and length. The extracted value can be assigned to a WAPT variable in hexadecimal form or as a string of text.

Note. In the unregistered version of the Module for Binary Formats, the maximum number of virtual users for tests containing requests with binary data is limited to 20. This limitation is removed when you register the product.
