Hi, we have started using WAS.   Will like to ask the support from the community or the Qualys team to explain to what extent Qualys WAS supports analyzing the following technologies that are used in web applications:


  • JavaScript
  • Java
  • Ajax
  • HTML 5
  • ActiveX
  • Silver Light
  • Flash
  • PhP
  • Single page applications
  • Web services
  • SOAP/WSDL, SOAP/WCF, REST/WADL, XML, JSON, Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and CRUD operations.
  • Frameworks like AngularJS, Bootstrap, DWR, GWT, ASP.NET, Ext JS, Prototype JS, Spring MVC


The information available in the manuals, online help and community forum is very scarce.   The information about the capabilities should be available to properly estimate if a web app can be fully analyzed by WAS before procuring additional scans.


Thanks in advance
