Can Neoload record and playback comet push notifications?

We are trying to record an application that uses comet push notifications, in particular XMLHttpRequest long polling. The push module of Neoload 5.1 does not seem to pick it up. Is there a way to record and play this back?

Some customers were able to record and replay applications that were using puch comet framework. But each implementation could be different with some different options too.

What result did you get when recording with NeoLoad? Did you application work when recording with NeoLoad especially the push mechanism?

Did you get any push messages mechanism recorded?

Hi Nouredine,

Thanks for the reply.
When we recorded the application Neoload captured both the polling and the push notifications coming through. However, it just recognised them as normal HTTP Post requests rather than creating a push message request.

Normally if NeoLoad identifies PUSH mechanism it should create a simplified virtual user with fork and PUSH messages.

So i guess it was not able to identify the PUSH mechanism of your application but it can also be done manually by the user.

Is it an online application that could be tried outside of your network?
