Abstract

When debugging an eBusiness web application, it is often necessary to expect a large amount of form data to be sent from the browser in order to cause the application to recreate the problem being debugged. Often, the application must flow through several pages in order to correctly accumulate the data required and to get the application into the proper state to recreate the problem. Recreating the problem several times, which is often necessary, is very inefficient use of the developers time using this approach. Provide a code module that intercepts all HTTP requests for the application and forwards the request on to the appropriate part of the application. This code module will: 1) Look for a well-defined html key/value pair in the form data. For example: "formdata=record".
