XLT 4.7.1 has been released


Release Overview

Xceptance released version 4.7.1 of its load testing and test automation product Xceptance LoadTest. This is a bug fix release and an update is recommended.

As always, this update is free for everyone.

Script Developer

  • Cannot apply test suite detail changes: Pressing the OK button to accept the changes made in the Test Suite Details dialog had no effect and changes weren’t saved. Fixed.
  • Refactoring a module does not update calling scripts: Refactoring a module, such as renaming it or moving it to another package, did work as expected, but the update of the calling scripts was missing. Fixed.


  • Authorization header is unnecessarily sent: In case the same WebClient is used to send requests to several hosts and one of them requires authentication, the Authorization request header was sent to all of the hosts. Fixed.
    This issue was caused by a bug in HtmlUnit, reported in late 2015. We provided a patch that will be part of the upcoming HtmlUnit release v2.24.
  • Request header ‘Authorization’ missing in result browser: In case the site under test requires the user to authenticate, the Authorization header that is sent wasn’t shown in XLT’s result browser. Fixed.
