Subject RE: SOAP and HttpUnit
Date Thu, 30 May 2002 17:02:04 GMT
Thanks, Mike. I am just starting to look into your product, so I hardly
understand the extension mechanism. As to comparison with HttpUnit, I better
like writing the Java code or some script then graphically build the
scenario. Is there a way in Jmeter to also avoid GUI driven development?

You'd need to write a SOAP extension to JMeter, though that wouldn't be
hard, and I'd be willing to do it for you if you help me out.  I could write
the skeleton of what you need, and you fill in the SOAP stuff.  It's about
time JMeter fully supported
SOAP anyway. The biggest difference between JMeter and HttpUnit is that you
"program" JMeter via the GUI, rather than writing Java code.  JMeter has a
proxy server that supports HTTP, recording of browser activity.  This proxy
could easily be the basis for a new proxy that allowed recording of SOAP
activity.  Is this what you meant by "sniff"? JMeter also has visualizers to
represent the test data.  Whether or not they meet your needs is hard to say
since you didn't specify, but I guess the answer is, yes, you can visualize
the traffic :-)

I am evaluating this product to test SOAP communication. Can somebody
comment on its suitability for the purpose? How is it comparing to HttpUnit?
Can I use it to sniff and visualize the traffic? Boris.
