Work with Streaming Data

Streaming is a special request which is executed in parallel with the main execution of user profile. It is a branch which is executed in background simultaneously with the main request.

During recording WAPT Pro recognizes only AMF-streaming. Other types of streaming data are not recognized, and you will see usual requests after recording. If you are sure that some of recorded requests is streaming, you can convert it using Convert To Streaming option on the right-click menu of that request. This action is invertible: you can convert the streaming back to request using Convert To Request option on the right-click menu.

You can specify several conditions to stop streaming:

Current session is completed: The streaming will be stopped when the current session is completed.
The number of chunks reaches _ : The streaming will be stopped when the number of chunks reaches a number specified here.
The streamed data length exceeds _ kilobytes: The streaming will be stopped when the streamed data length exceeds the amount of kilobytes specified here.
Duration exceeds _ seconds: The streaming will be stopped when its duration exceeds the time specified here.

If you specify several conditions, then the streaming will be stopped when any of these conditions is fulfilled.

While the streaming is executed, you cannot manage it or interact with it. You cannot stop the streaming manually. It will be stopped when the specified condition(s) is fulfilled.


WAPT Pro recognizes AMF-streaming data during recording. Such requests appear in the left pane as "streaming" requests.

To parameterize these requests, you need a special Module for Adobe® Flash® Testing (which is installed on the system running the workplace component of WAPT Pro). If you do not need to parameterize these requests, you can test them without this module. However in this case you cannot change parameter values of AMF requests, so they will be reproduced during the test run just as they were initially recorded.
