Long or never-ending Explore stage

For some types of site the Explore stage may take a long time or never end.

The cause of this problem may be that the site rewrites parameters into the URL, creating tens - or even hundreds - of "dynamic" URLs for what are essentially the same page.

Although these URLs will appear in the application tree as 100 separate nodes, and tests will be created for each of them, there is probably no need to test them all separately.

The Explore Optimization module can identify the pattern and create a custom parameter that will enable AppScan to treat all these URLs as one.
