Getting Started: Scripting with JMeter Mayday, mayday! Is that how you feel when looking over JMeter? No worries. On this particular May day (see how I did that?), we'll get you through your first JMeter script creation.
Sometimes testing an entire website is not enough. Sometimes, you also need to test the website or web-app database itself.
Generally, we discuss using different elements of JMeter. But often, JMeter is used for implementing more complex tasks. So today, we'll show you how to create an entire script. For script creation, we've used the Mantis bug tracker as an application under test. it's been set up at a local web-server to avoid the influence of network connections. In other words, we only want to see the behavior of the application itself.
Time flies. We were just introduced to a damn fine JMeter 2.7. After what feels like a whirlwind love affair, JMeter 2.8 emerged making our heart swoon all over again. And of course, as BlazeMeter is an adoring amoureux, we fully support JMeter 2.8 now and forever! What’s new in JMeter 2.8 that has our hearts all asunder? Core improvements! Reporting improvements! Graphic improvements! May our hearts be still.
What is the simplest test plan in JMeter? It is a single Thread Group that contains both the HTTP Sample Requests AND the View Results Tree at the end of test plan. But is it a good test plan? Umm...that would be a definite no. Why? Because we said so. Just kidding, because in this case, JMeter will send requests one by one without any pauses in between.
