I try to run the scanner against GWT JavaScript authenticated application on Web User Interface, not through command line. There is no form and the username and password attributes when viewing the source code of the login page. My question is does Arachni support the GWT login application? I got the error and how can I verify if the login authentication is successful?

    You probably need to get the names with Firebug or something similar, so that you can see the evaluated DOM and hence the form's inputs.

    Yes when I view source I cannot see the form. But even I can use Firebug to get the DOM, then how does it help the scanner login authentication? Do you think Arachni is able to support GWT application?

    It should, I haven't heard of any issues with GWT before.

    "View source" works different from debugging tools like Firebug, it'll just show you the HTTP response, which won't include the form if it's created dynamically via JS.
