Problem with malformed BASE tag in HTML recording

Hi all,

during replay a web application in HTML-mode with option "download non-HTML resources" on i get lot of http-400 errors for html and non-html content. Looking at the source code of the site i found the header tag

<BASE href="./">

vUGen tries to download resources (even html and non-html) with the URL


Cause for the 404-errors seems to be the "." after tld.

It is neccessary for the script to download content dynamically, URL-Mode is not an option.

Does someone here facing the same problem?

Any suggestions to work with the malformed html-header (i.e. web_add_header)?


Thanks in advance, Christoph

Re: Problem with malformed BASE tag in HTML recording

Hi Christoph,

Did you try recording in HTML level? You can change the settings in recording options dialog.

Alternatively, you can use traffic filtering to filter out these requests.
