we are testing a siebel application where one of the parameters is sent like this:
<parameter name="SelectedTimeZone">(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)</parameter>
Apparently, this one fails with this message in the response - "View: <?> does not contain applet: <?>.(SBL-UIF-00401)". I think this could be due to the presence of "&" in the request. I tried changing this to "\&", "&" etc, but nothing worked really. anyone has idea on how to handle such special characters in neoload?
& is the HTML encoded value for & characters. Since it's inside an XML content, NeoLoad needs to HTML encode this type of characters. But i guess when NeoLoad sends the request to the server the value is then sent properly i.e &.
So are you sure that the issue is really because of that character?
You could try to put a proxy behind NeoLoad to confirm what NeoLoad sends.
