Error description

  • When caching is enabled in an RPT test, a Content VP failure is
    reported on a response which does not contain a Content VP.
    
    For example, consider a test with three pages containing the
    same request:
    
      GET /webapps/MyPortalApp/index.jsp
    
    The middle instance has a Content VP which checks for the string
    "Secure Portal"; this string will appear but only for the middle
    iteration.
    
    The request on the final page doesn't have (and never had) a
    Content VP but after a playback, in the Test Log, a failed
    Content VP will be reported for this request.
    
    If caching is disabled in the test, the failing Content VP does
    not get reported (i.e. the problem goes away).
