Subject url-encoding a parameter ?
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2001 15:41:13 GMT
Is there a way to url-encode a parameter with Jmeter ?

I have a parameter (token) that is url-encoded (not stored on the Http
Session) that is generated dynamically & carried across multiple pages ,
some pages in the application requires its existence.
How can I do that in Jmeter ?
I don't think that using a Modification Manager can help - because the page
that would precede the modification Manager (with the links with 'variable'
values) does not have a way to know what value of that token is unless a
previous application page was modified and did a forward to that page with
that parameter - but this means changing the application - not desirable.

Here is a scenario:

page A - generates a token
forwards to page B with the token parameter in the URL String
how can I pass it to page C ? (meaning 'url-encode' it)

I used a workaround by re-ordering the invocation of the pages and relying
on the fact that page B doesn't need the token.
invoking page B
invoking page A with added link for the HTML parser
invoking page C that has a substituted parameter (using the modification
This is far from optimal - it may not work in all cases and also required
adding the html link to page A
