Subject Re: HTML link Parser question
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2002 16:16:33 GMT
There's a lot of things that could prevent this from working:

1.  Are you using JMeter 1.7.3 or a recent nightly?  JMeter 1.7 will not work they way your

test is described.

2. Are the edits sent in req 2 a Form or an anchor link?  If a form, did you make req2 use
POST method?  If a link, is it set to GET?

3. Are some of the values and/or path of the form in req 2 set using javascript that the HTML

Link Parser can't parse?

4.  Did you create this test by recording it or by writing it by hand?  If by hand, you've
likely made a mistake somewhere - easier to record and modify afterward than write by hand.

5.  When all else fails, you must examine the HTML response from req1 and verify it contains

the form or link and all the values you expect it to contain.  Javascript and other funkiness
screw things up (but that doesn't mean there aren't ways around this).
